St. Petersburg, Florida -- On Saturday, May 19, at 8:30 a.m., Mayor Bill Foster will kick off the Paris Project Corridor Improvement Program at 712, 15th Avenue S.

The morning's events will include the cleaning, painting, and landscaping of two Habitat for Humanity homes at 843 and 759 15th Avenue S. and a neighborhood clean-up including tree trimming and painting of fire hydrants along the corridor.

The morning will conclude with a celebration and community outreach program at Neighborhood Home Solutions at 1600 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. St. S.  The Corridor Improvement Program is modeled after the initial Paris Project of a few years ago where improvements were done to the home owned by Paris Whitehead's family, which resulted in additional homes receiving assistance, and the subsequent transformation of the entire block.

Participating partners include the Pinellas Habitat for Humanity, St. Petersburg Neighborhood Home Solutions, Rebuilding Together Tampa Bay, Pinellas Urban League Weatherization Program and the Bartlett Park Neighbor Association.

In addition, volunteers will be assisting from Job Corps, the Harbordale Neighborhood, and youth and teen groups from the Frank Pierce Recreation Center.
