Streetscape 2021 - The Real Stemulus

Come join us for Planting Day

Streetscape 2021 will be a hybrid event, and we’re providing masks that match our T-shirts to meet safety guidelines. All worksites will be socially distanced. Volunteers will report directly to pre-assigned sites rather than gathering for breakfast downtown. Plants and materials will be on-site, with master gardeners ready to help direct work. Now more than ever, we need to show strong community recommitment to downtown businesses, development, and preservation. To support our downtown businesses, CityScape will purchase gift cards from downtown restaurants and distribute these for volunteers to use either for lunch to go, or later at their convenience.

The Youngstown SMART2 Network will connect Strategic & Sustainable, Medical & Manufacturing, Academic & Arts, Residential & Recreational, Technology & Training centers in the heart of the Mahoning Valley region, by enhancing mobility, improving safety, and integrating technology into a modern and efficient multimodal transportation system in Downtown Youngstown that is responsive and adaptive to the needs of current and future users.
