Southwest Beautification - Project #4

This small, triangular piece of land sits next to an abandoned service center/gas station on Third Street Road at the Pages Lane intersection. A real opportunity, and a perfect area for some attention.

Notice the for-profit organization that dumped a donation box in this spot. It must be removed. The Bobby Nichols Golf Course is a few miles away, and this little spot of land should be used to welcome visitors as well as residents. The affluent Bridgegate and Stoneridge Landing subdivisions are nearby. It is across the street from a hair salon housed in a beautiful "A-Frame". Unfortunately, there's a check-cashing joint on the corner. Comments? Suggestions?

    We need to lean on Councilman Bob Henderson to clean up these areas and demand the city bury telephone wires and give us the funds to clean up our area of dumps like this. Also, people in our area need to take responsibility for the beauty of our historic little niche. Have you seen the garbage carelessly strung along every road in the area? The preserved wetlands and small cemetery along Johnsontown Road (around Trade Port Drive) is embarassing, as it is so unnecessary not to mention disrespectful to the dead. People just throw stuff out, including dumping furniture! A campaign to stop people's litter needs to take place.
