OVER THE RHINE, OH (FOX19) -

Grant Rec Area Playground off East McMicken Avenue closed Wednesday for the next 90 days so community and city leaders can clean it up.

The East Quadrant OTR Neighborhood Enhancement Project, or NEP, is a partnership between Cincinnati city officials and about two dozen community organizations. Their goal is to rid the neighborhood of blight, lower crime and improve the overall feel.

Participants, including Mayor John Cranley, started putting up a fence around the park at 11:30 a.m. Debris clean-up began right after.
