Greenspace

When a lot is empty and overgrown, it perpetuates low morale within the community. Our Greenspace Program creates green, clean, and beautiful places in Cincinnati's neighborhoods through two signature programs Help A lot and Vacant Lots Occupied. 

 

 

The goal of both programs is to encourage people to restore underutilized public spaces into socially, culturally, and environmentally responsible spaces that reflect the 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 wildlife; (3) reducing noise pollution, stormwater runoff and the urban heat island effect; (4) improving air, soil and water quality.
