Idora Workday Focuses on Cleanout of 3029 Glenwood Avenue

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

On Saturday, January 17th, dozens of community volunteers and members of Tabernacle Evangelical Presbyterian Church participated in a community workday aimed at cleaning out 3029 Glenwood Avenue, a vacant home that YNDC aims to rehabilitate as part of a broader effort to stabilize and improve the Glenwood Avenue corridor.

Nearly a tractor trailer full of trash, rotted carpets, and construction debris was hauled out of the house in three hours.

This property was donated to YNDC as a result of the efforts of YNDC AmeriCorps VISTA Matthew Honer, who conducted detailed research to identify, track down, and establish contact with the former owner. The house had sat vacant and un-maintained for over 3 years.
