Workday Set for Oct. 10 at South Ave. Project

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Green Youngstown is inviting volunteers to help complete installation of greenspace and a half-court basketball court at South and Cameron avenues. A workday is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 10.

A $10,000 Think Green grant from Keep America Beautiful provided funding for the project, with additional in-kind donations from the city of Youngstown and Billet Landscaping.

Throughout September, professionals completed major hardscape aspects of the project. At the Oct. 10 workday, volunteers will be asked to plant bushes and flowers, spread mulch and topsoil and prepare the basketball court for completion.

The R.U.B.Y. – Revitalization and Urban Beautification of Youngtown — trailer will be on hand to provide needed tools and supplies.
