Neighbors determine where and what kind of project they wish to undertake. Parks, abandoned lots, public and private housing associations, neglected front yards and curb strips are some of the spaces residents choose to plant and maintain through this program. The Community Greenspace program supports projects that better unite a community. Citizens working on common space projects, such as vacant lots, parks, and curb strips are successful in achieving that goal.
