If you're planning to head down Roosevelt Street tomorrow, make sure you plan a few extra minutes to look around. 

More than 800 volunteers will be painting murals, landscaping lots, and building tables as part of a revitalization project and partnership between Citigroup, HandsOn Greater Phoenix, and Roosevelt Row.

Volunteers have been cutting ribbons and outlining community mural space, and local artists Laura Spalding BestCarrie Marill, and Tara Logsdon will be painting large-scale scenes on the intersections of Second St. and Garfield, Second St. and Roosevelt, and Fourth St. and Roosevelt. (Stay tuned for photos ...)

Roosevelt Row's Kenny Barrett, who's organizing the effort along with Rhonda Oliver of HandsOn, says volunteers will also being prepping the lot on Sixth and Garfield streets for the second round of Valley of the Sunflowers, a temporary revitalization project. 

Volunteer work will begin at 8 a.m. and finish around noon.
