TAYLOR — The city’s Good to Great Neighborhood Program has moved into two new areas.
G2G is working in Areas 22 and 25. Area 22 includes the neighborhoods between Telegraph, Ecorse, Monroe and Wick roads. Area 25 includes the area between Goddard, Koths, Pardee and Telegraph roads.
G2G focuses on making enhancements such as beautification, parks, signage, trees, utilities, roads, catch basins, neighborhood businesses, LED lighting, blight removal, sewer maintenance and even public safety.
As part of this program, Taylor police will host a meet-and-greet session with residents at 5 p.m. Aug. 17 at the corner of Hayes and Pine streets. This is an opportunity for residents to meet and interact with the police officers and get a better understanding of the safety concerns in their area.
G2G will offer free mulch for property enhancement. The city of has free mulch available at:
• Fellowship Freewill Baptist Church parking lot, 23300 Kensington St.
• Taylor School District maintenance building parking lot at Pine Street south of Beyers.
G2G also offers a tree program for replacements or additions of trees in the easement (between sidewalk and street) of residential property. These are easement-friendly trees and cost $200. Once trees have been purchased, the city will install them in easements in a bed of soft-edge mulch and provide a slow release watering bag per tree.
