As part of Keep Akron Beautiful's Clean Up Akron Week, a number of young people met in East Akron to clean up the streets. Click through for a few photos from the group, led in part by Ameer Williamson (aka A Minus), who also mentors young people through the A New Way hip-hop program.
City hosts ribbon-cutting to celebrate the Village at New Seasons
The site at the corner of Vernon Odom Boulevard and Hawkins Avenue sat vacant for years, collecting trash and graffiti. Now, the space houses the Village at New Seasons, a new $11.4 million complex with senior living apartments, retail space and a health center.
The city recently hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the official opening of the development.
The more than 115,000-square-foot facility was developed through the combined efforts of the House of the Lord, who owns the land; the East Akron Neighborhood Development Corporation; Testa Companies; and Summa Health System, among other investors.
