Beautification Committee meets, sets goals for downtown

By Rick Kennedy, managing editor
The Hope Beautification Committee met Tuesday night in a one-hour session, where a number of topics regarding the City of Hope were discussed.
The committee’s chair, Steve Atchley, spoke about the highlights of the meeting afterwards.
“We are looking at the two flower beds at Division and Walnut and Division and Elm. We are also looking at taking bids at the flower bed at the Farmer’s Market on Third Street. We are going to try to get some pricing on that, and redo that bed like the one at Walnut and Third,” Atchley said.
Atchley said the proposed new “Welcome to Hope” signage for downtown is not yet ready, and he said lighting would be installed so visitors could have pictures.
“We had discussed Christmas lighting in downtown, and also the lighting the Hope Water tower this coming Christmas season,” he said.
Atchley also said the group discussed cleaning of downtown, including a repainting of the curbs, which Atchley said was mentioned two years ago.
Two other items touched on were cleaning of the fire hydrants in town as well as lighting at the off-ramps at Hope’s two Interstate locations, Exit 30 and Exit 31.
After the meeting adjourned, the committee presented the April 2019 Yard of the Month award to Bill and Ginger Tolleson, who reside on Country Club Lane.  See related link on SWARK Today at:
