Don't Forget to #LoveThatLot This Valentine's Day

What better way to show you love for your community than by transforming its underused spaces into gathering areas for activities and fun?

The Center for Community Progress has an idea about how to celebrate Valentine's Day: " Why not celebrate it by sending Valentine love to your favorite revitalization projects and community champions?"

The Center for Community Progress is celebrating the third annual #LoveThatLot campaign to spread the news about revitalized spaces in cities as varied as Milwaukee, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Newark.

All you have to do to participate is share photos of revitalized lots in your community, send a Valentine (available to download on the Center for Community progress website), or use the #LoveThatLot.

Even if you don't live in a city challenged by blighted or vacant lots, we recommend checking out the #LoveThatLot campaign for inspiration and a reminder about the power of community action—maybe even through in an expression of solidarity.
