How does all of this tie in with keep Akron Beautiful? You can submit ideas for clean-up projects anywhere in Akron. Downtown Akron Partnership will take care of projects that take place in downtown and Keep Akron Beautiful will help with projects suggested outside of that parameter, as long as they fit within our mission.
