A Strong Start to the Love Your Block Season!
The Hazelwood Initiative and local residents braved the cold last Saturday to enhance a local food market. Volulnteers built and painted tables and benches, cleared debris and removed grafitti. Check out all the photos here!
Join us for a Love Your Block Spring 2015 Project!
This season, we will complete 15 community projects taking place between April 15 and June 30! Come out and join us and Love Your Block!
The next projects will be on May 9th with Bloomfield Development Corporation and Perry Hilltop Citizens Council. We will be revitalizing a traffic island and creating a community greenspace. All are welcome!
Check out our full schedule of project here!
Building Partnerships, Strengthening Communities
"The City departments are accessible and quick to respond to questions adn concerns. Love Your Block is a great program." - Rachel Romano, Beechview Community Garden
"They [Department of Public Works] were awesome, concerned, and dedicated to helping Troy Hill beautify the public park." - Nancy Noszka, Troy Hill Citizens
Creating Community Involvement!
"We were able to create a new green space that is family friendly in the South Side and revitalize a corner of Armstrong Park that is very neglected. Everyone was super excited and energized to be there [and the best part of the Love Your Block event was] seeing the neighbors in the adjacent area coming out and asking what we were doing and thanking us for the hard work."
- Jenn Holliman, South Side Community Council
Bringing Communities Together!
"[The best part of the Love Your Block Event was] the numbers of volunteers who cared enough to come out and create a difference in our neighborhood. The sweat, laughter, hard work and getting dirty together was priceless."
