Program to revitalize La Crosse considered a success

ReNEW La Crosse completed 58 projects

It was a successful Spring for a local organization looking to revitalize area neighborhoods.

ReNEW La Crosse Neighborhoods were able to complete 58 projects on 26 different properties. Work such as landscaping, painting, simple repairs, and yard clean-up were part of the projects.

Nearly 150 people volunteered more than 13-hundred hours of time towards the projects, and even though ReNEW Spring projects have ended, there’s still more left to do. “We continue working on the house throughout the Summer so we have some houses we haven’t even started to work on yet, so there’s still a lot left to do,” said Amanda Acklin, ReNEW Executive Director.
