Volunteers Clean Up Vacant Properties at February Newport Neighborhood Workday

Monday, February 18, 2019

On Saturday, February 16, thirty volunteers helped clean up vacant properties at the Newport Neighborhood Workday.

Neighborhood residents, along with volunteers from YSUscape and the YSU Honors College removed 18 illegally-dumped tires, 40 cubic yards of brush and debris, installed 13 LED security lights, reclaimed 250 linear feet of sidewalk, and secured one vacant home. We would like to thank all the volunteers for their hard work and Sixth Ward Councilwoman Anita Davis, who attended and spoke with volunteers and expressed her gratitude for the progress being made in the Newport Neighborhood. We would also like to thank to Mocha House for graciously supplying coffee and hot chocolate for the volunteers.
