Greening a plaza in Utica, New York 
Local associations often partner with NYS municipalities to identify and implement innovative responses to fiscal stress. Many communities have an abundance of vacant lots and public spaces, a costly social and economic issue. Creative uses of these parcels that contribute to overall community and economic vitality include the development of community and youth recreation spaces, gardens, small businesses, and cooperative housing.
