OOCCL supports the N. Polk St Beautification Project….once again!

Kings Highway Conservation District recently was awarded $3,685 towards the N. Polk St Beautification Project.  This funding helps to pay for irrigation and water meter installation to keep the landscaping healthy year round.

Jonathan Braddick, Vice President of the Kings Highway Conservation District, said the league was the project’s catalyst.  “In 2010, OOCCL helped to fund the landscape design work for the N. Polk St/Turner-Winston triangles, and this year’s grant will help to pay for the installation of the first of many phases to come along the corridor.  We are so appreciative of their supporting us for this project,”  Braddick said.  “It means the world to us as a neighborhood.  We’re so fortunate to have the league and their ongoing efforts to enhance our neighborhood, in particular the N. Polk St. corridor.”
