Award Recipient: Northside Urban Partnership

The Onondaga Citizens League awarded a CitiScapes Civic Beautification grant to the Northside Urban Partnership for landscaping and planting of the Triangle Park at North Salina and North State Streets, a gateway to the city’s historic Northside and early home to many of the community’s immigrants and refugees.

The CitiScapes Civic Beautification Award was an Action Step taken as a result of the 2011 OCL study report, Community Image: Valuing Our Public Spaces”  that explored  what creates a positive community image, why community image is important, and strategies for creating and sustaining successful public spaces.
