Warren City Schools Superintendent Steve Chiaro, Board of Education President Julian Walker, Vice President Patricia M. Limperos, board member John Fowley and John Lacy, Director of Business Operations, on Tuesday, Aug. 15, 2023, attended the groundbreaking for the new West Warren Industrial Park project.
The school district owned about 30 acres of the land, but sold it to the developer for the project. It was the home of the former Warren Western Reserve High School, which later was a middle school middle for the district. Alden Elementary School also was at the site. Warren City owned the other 50 or acres where the former Westlawn neighborhood was located.
School leaders were among a large group of local and state officials in attendance, including Gov. Mike DeWine, who commended everyone involved for their efforts in advancing Warren City and Warren Schools.
