Fresh Mobs are a grassroots effort to beautify the Lorain Road Corridor. Based on the popular flash mob concept, a Fresh Mob entails volunteers assembling at a Lorain Road property and performing such tasks as litter collection, painting, weeding and planting of garden beds, or other such jobs. Fresh Mobs are able to be arranged with a short turnaround, which allows the program to be flexible and responsive to community needs.

Any public or private space along the Lorain Road Corridor is eligible for the Fresh Mobs program. Properties may be identified in two ways:

  • Property owners may request assistance from Forward Fairview Park. Property owners are expected to actively participate in the event in some fashion, as well as provide resources and tools as necessary.
  • Forward Fairview Park may select vacant and dilapidated properties and reach out to property owners.

If you are a property owner needing assistance or a community member wishing to recommend a property for freshening up, contact us today.
