WHAT IS IT? An art project under construction at the intersection of Edward Avenue and 19th Street NE in Canton.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW? The neighborhood, called the Boulevards by locals, is getting help from the Community Building Partnership, with support from Chase Bank and ArtsinStark, said partnership Director Joel Owens. The partnership is a nonprofit organization supported by 17 community foundations and committed to restoring the health and prosperity of Stark County neighborhoods, he said.
WHAT’S THE PROCESS? Canton installed the curbing, but neighborhood residents built the area to display a piece of art, yet to be created. “We try to do some things at the social level so people are interacting again,” Owens said. The partnership does a project every year and tries to get neighbors involved. The organization forms community development policies, programs and tools that promote resident investment of time, effort, and money in their homes and neighborhoods.
