Dozens of people contributed money and time. Keep DeKalb Beautiful provided expert assistance, heavy equipment, and volunteers. Local business donated money and in-kind support. We worked together and beautified the median on S.Hairston, just south of Redan.
It is planted with 10 crepe myrtle and 58 bushes — burning bush, ornamental grass, and gold mop cypress.
Our volunteers also picked up trash for close to one mile in each direction of the intersection. DeKalb County Commissioner Mereda Davis-Johnson came, and she helped pick up trash and dig! Steve Bradshaw, Democratic nominee for Commissioner District 4 also attended and helped. Keep DeKalb Beautiful Director Gordon Burkette and his crew (all volunteering their time on Saturday) pitched in all day long.
Thank you, everybody, for the wonderful community spirit. This project demonstrates our commitment to each other, high standards, and revitalized business districts.
I’ve put some pictures below. We’ll put a slide show together soon and share it.
