Summary

Thanks to the dedication of neighbors and the enthusiasm of neighborhood youth, the City Point Greenspace group enjoyed a hard-working third summer with the program and made a beautiful impact on their streetscape. After a devastating fire left one house razed and another badly damaged on the block between First and Second on Howard Ave., the group chose to focus their efforts on that block. TKTK perennials, many yards of mulch, and a whole lot of elobow grease later, the block looks fully revitalized - a wonderful welcome back to the neighborhood.
