FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- They've partnered with the City Riverfront Project, and the Fort Wayne Police Department to prepare for the summer season getting places spruced up for the public.

"I like it. It's really hot out here, but we're doing something good, so I don't have a problem with it," student Dyaria Rowland said.

Other location sights for community projects include Portage Middle School, Towles Intermediate School, Scott Academy and Maplewood and South Wayne Elementary schools.
