Steve Roberts pitched his idea for an Ohio City clean up day at Accelerate 2015. After the event, he worked with Ohio City, Inc. to organize a group of neighborhood volunteers to clean up Ohio City. Steve saw his vision become reality on May 9, 2015 with the Ohio City Clean UP and Green Up Day. Over 40 enthusiastic volunteers cleaned up the area and filled a 40-yard dumpster to the rim. He is planning for the event to occur again in 2016.
