Motor City Makeover

Motor City Makeover 365 is an annual citywide volunteer cleanup and beautification initiative. Over the past 30 years MCM 365 has evolved, partnering with block clubs and associations on their efforts has become essential to the success of this initiative. Annually, thousands of volunteers across Detroit come together to clean and beautify neighborhoods, parks, playgrounds, and around businesses, schools, and places of worship. 

Again, this year, the City of Detroit is supporting block clubs, community groups and other organizations as they beautify their neighborhoods for Motor City Makeover 365. In addition, we are transitioning flower day from one day in June to each weekend of MCM 365.  

Beautification and clean-ups projects will take place three Saturdays in May by Council Districts.   Take Part!!  Register today to help keep Detroit beautiful! 

May 6
Districts 1, 2 and 3 

May 13
Districts 4 and 5 

May 20
Districts 6 and 7 

Individuals and groups MUST register with the City of Detroit to receive limited supplies, flowers and to schedule special pickups.  Upon registration, your District Managers will provide supply pick-up information.

In addition to these clean-up efforts, we encourage beautification efforts all year round. For example, get involved with Earth Day events, flower planting, Neighborhood Day, anti-litter campaigns, Safe Routes to Schools, or recycling training and other events!
