As the weather gets nicer in St. Louis, many community groups have been out and active doing their part to clean up the city and enjoy the sunshine.
The West End hosted “Clean Up Day” on April 17th to clean up the streets running north and south throughout the neighborhood. This event was one of many community clean up events held along the Hodiamont Tracks, sponsored by Great Rivers Greenway, in preparation for a potential new greenway along the Hodimont Corridor. An Advisory Committee has been formed to determine whether a greenway would be a good use for this corridor.
