The impact of Square Up extends beyond the removal of litter or newly painted buildings. It also improves the quality of life for city residents. Engaged communities are far less likely to let their neighborhoods fall into blighted conditions and can act as a powerful force in preventing crime and other negative behaviors.

Square Up projects also empower participants and instill community ownership of public spaces. This further motivates citizens to pursue new neighborhood revitalization projects, even after the Square Up project has ended.
