Youngstown CityScape unveils June beautification project



Published: Fri, March 22, 2013 @ 9:56 a.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Youngstown CityScape announced its 2013 Streetscape program, called Grow the YO!, will be from 8 a.m. to noon June 1.

Volunteers will beautify the downtown area and Wick Park.

The event usually raises about $50,000 annually to purchase flowers, shrubs, mulch, and planting and cleaning equipment, said Sharon Letson, executive director of Youngstown CityScape, which oversees Streetscape. This will be the 16th annual Streetscape planting day in the city.

Streetscape officials announced the event and its fundraising drive today at the D.D. and Velma Davis Center at Mill Creek MetroParks’ Fellows Riverside Gardens.

“We started off 16 years ago with a couple of brooms and pots of flowers,” Letson said. “It’s blown into a major community involvement program and 500” participants.

Yes, all those flowers and shrubs will make the vacant buildings people are not allowed to have businesses in look a lot better!
