YNDC Completes New Vacant Land Reuse Projects Citywide

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

In the fall of 2014, YNDC completed vacant land stabilization projects on 59 lots along the Glenwood Avenue Corridor and through our citywide Lots of Green 2.0 program.

In Idora, projects have included recent demolition sites and strategic expansions of current projects. On the Glenwood Corridor, projects have been highly visible cleanups on recent demolitions. A total of 7 projects were completed through the Lots of Green 2.0 program, including three community gardens, a small urban farm, and several neighborhood cleanups. These projects have provided safe places for children to play, cleaned up highly visible intersections, and will provide fresh produce for years to come.
