Love Your Block

Featured City

Flint, MI

Love Your Block

In the first year of Flint’s Love Your Block initiative, volunteers got rid of 1.8 million pounds of waste, removed 4,500 square feet of graffiti, cleaned up 122 abandoned properties, and created 57 green spaces. In its second year, the city plans to revitalize 40 more blocks by getting rid of 2 million more tons of waste, removing 5,000 more square feet of graffiti, creating 20 more green spaces, and cleaning up 200 more parcels of abandoned land. Volunteer engagement has been spectacular.
