    Blight to Beauty: A Transforming Project for Magnolia Park
    The East End District has helped change the image of the East End, once known for graffiti, illegal dumping, and overgrown and neglected properties. Eradicating these negative influences and replacing them with safer trails, green spaces, and colorful murals inspired GEEMD to develop a unique project called "Blight to Beauty" along J W Peavy, one of the most heavily trashed streets in the East End.
