YSUScape Revitalizes And Cleans Up Neighborhood - The Jambar


YSUscape teamed up with the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation for their fourth annual Make a Difference Workday. 

On Saturday, over 20 volunteers cleaned vacant houses, boarded windows and trimmed hedges in a Youngstown neighborhood. Volunteers cleaned houses on Norwood and Crandall on the city’s North Side. Daniel Bancroft, president of YSUscape, said they were originally going to have four areas for the workday, but cancelled two areas due to the rain. Bancroft said they cut down trees, picked up tires that might be outside on the property and scraped sidewalks. Volunteers helped to pick up trash and clean up brush. Bancroft said YSUscape has workdays multiple times a year. “Another large focus we have is on public art and implementing that throughout the city of Youngstown,” Bancroft said. “Another project we’re currently working on is installing vinyl artwork onto utility boxes in the downtown area and up along Wick Avenue.” Bancroft said the artwork should be up in the next month or so.
