The area around Lincoln High School, in Cleveland, Ohio, near Meyer Avenue did not have as much trash thrown about today, August 21, 2009 as it did on Sunday, and I was happy to see the improvement. Someone must have been out there cleaning the area. I was able to recruit my husband and my son to help me pick up trash in the area. We removed about a garbage bag and a half of trash from the area. The parking lot of Lincoln West had a lot of broken glass on the pavement, and weeds were growing around the lot. Not a pretty site for a public school property. It certainly would not give any newcomers to the area a good impression. This would be a good place to start with urban renewal....right at the public school where the children go to get educated. Someone mentioned a garden in place of the concrete. After cleaning up the area, a garden would be a good second step in urban renewal. Give the childern something to be proud of instead of giving them broken glass and weeds.
