Greenspace

When a lot is empty and overgrown, it perpetuates a low morale within the community.

Keep Cincinnati Beautiful's Greenspace Program creates green, clean, and beautiful places in Cincinnati's neighborhoods through two signature programs: Vacant Lots: Occupied and Help-A-Lot.  The goal of both programs is to encourage people to restore underutilized public spaces into socially, culturally, and environmentally responsible spaces that reflect that social character of the neighborhood.

Greening urban spaces brings ecological benefits to communities by: 1 - increasing safety, property values and overall quality of life in communities struggling with vacancy and blight; 2 - providing habitats for pollinators and other wild life; 3 - reducing noise pollution, storm water runoff and the urban heat island effect; 4 - improving air, soil and water quality.
