DETROIT (AP) - City officials are expected to release details of an annual cleanup project that removes blight and bolsters pride in Detroit.

Mayor Mike Dugan and community organizations will attend the kickoff for the 2017 Motor City Makeover at noon Thursday at the Northwest Activities Center.

The city says this year’s “Motor City Makeover 365” theme will emphasize year-round beautification efforts. Volunteers help clean around homes, businesses, churches and schools, and board up vacant houses. The planting of flowers, plants or trees also is encouraged.

A new website that allows people to connect with volunteer opportunities also will be announced Thursday.
