Spring is here and it's time to gear up for the 10th annual Green & Clean in Downtown Akron.

This year's event takes place on Friday, May 12, 19 and 26.

During Green & Clean, business employees, students and community members form teams and do cleaning and beautification projects throughout the neighborhood. The goal is to engage the community in making our downtown vibrant and valuable.

Project areas include Commerce Park, Richard Howe House/Lock 2, 22 Exchange, Broadway and CitiCenter parking decks, Charles Goodyear Park, Cascade Plaza/Quaker Street, CVSR Northside Station and the community garden at Main/Mill Streets.
