Is a Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) inspired event.  Crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) has become a popular urban planning approach to preventing crime and mitigating fear of crime through the improvement of physical neighborhood environments.  The Love a Lot, Love a Life Project was birthed out of the NFNAC Housing & Neighborhoods Action Team for the purpose of reaching areas in which there are not or we are unaware of a block club or neighborhood association being associated with them.  The Love a Lot portion of the project is to assist the area by boarding abandoned houses and painting the boards, cutting vacant lots, removing illegal dumping, clear sidewalks of debris and brush so they are traversable.   The Love a Life portion is when we approach residents who may not have the wherewithal to maintain their yard if we can assist in manicure their lawn, plant flowers and remove overgrown shrubbery.  The project reaches desires to reach out and to remind that community has not forgotten them.
