2020 Greenspace Report

Since 2016, the Washington Avenue Greenspace has been working to improve the vacant lot and streetscape along this block, where there had previously been essentially no street trees or public greenspace. This site is exemplary of how planning and commitment from summer to summer can bring about positive change to a street that formerly boasted few greenspaces. Although attendance was down this summer due to COVID-19, the group completed all of their stewardship goals and planted a few replacement plants along the edges of the lot.
