What does the Lincoln Street Green Strip look like today?
The area currently looks better than it has in years. The site was fortunate to get a thorough cleaning on April 18, 2005 by the Project Pride work crew. During winter months the site is particularly dreary. Plans to improve the site need to improve the "off-season" appearance.

What has it looked like in the past?
Trash and uncontrolled weed growth have been problems in the past.
