Neighborhood Revitalization

Love Your Block

Through Love Your Block, the City of Boston will target neighborhoods with the highest number of problematic properties, canvass longtime residents representing multiple age and cultural demographics; deploy teams of citizen volunteers to clean abutting public spaces; and then partner with property owners to enable volunteers to complete additional improvements.

"Cities of Service will help Boston residents and local government work together to enhance public spaces​, improve ​the health​ and overall well-being​ of local communities, ​and boost ​levels of ​civic ​engagement."
Mayor Marty Walsh
