Volunteers, community and YSU groups to clean Powerstown Saturday
Volunteers and community partners will gather at 9 a.m. Saturday at the former Coach’s Bar and Grille parking lot, 3178 Sheridan Road, to clean up nine vacant properties in the Powerstown neighborhood on the city’s southeast side. Cleanup activities begin at 9:15 a.m. and end at 2 p.m.
The initiative is spearheaded by a partnership between the Powerstown Block Watch, the 7th Ward Citizen’s Coalition, the city, Mahoning County Land Bank and Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corp.
In addition, community volunteers from three Youngstown State University student groups — Sigma Tau Gamma Fraternity, the University Scholars and Honors program and YSU-Scape — also will pitch in and help the effort.
