Clean up efforts

UPDATE #2- Downtown Residents- we are moving our plans up to 10 a.m. in order to help clean what we can before the noon curfew starts. One of us will be at the monument at 11 to ensure no one is missed. At the city’s request, we will only be cleaning up trash - no glass— Downtown Residents (@dtCLEresidents) May 31, 2020
The city said it is working with the Downtown Cleveland Alliance to help clean up.
