Summer of Service Graffiti Clean-Up

On August 13th 2015, Canalway Partners teamed up with Hyland Software, BVU VolunteersSherwin Williams and Forest City for a large graffiti clean-up project in the Flats.

The clean-up was part of Hyland Software’s annual “Summer of Service” program, which sent 300+ Hyland employees to volunteer project sites across Tremont. Sherwin Williams donated paint and supplies.

The wall covers a large area in the Flats it is visible across the river from Columbus Road.

The Summer of Service team tackled several project across Tremont and the Flats, for example they gave the pedestrian bridge over 490 a great new look- just in time for kids walking back to school.

Canalway Partners works to clean up graffiti each year as part of its RiverSweep program. See some of our work from RiverSweep 2015 online here:
