Cy-Fair Chamber's Community Growth Committee works on cleaning up community
The Cy-Fair Chamber of Commerce Community Growth Committee recently spent time cleaning up the community through its Cy-Fair Community Improvement Project.
Members are leading efforts to replace damaged signs, spruce up neglected landscape, remove expired sales banners and mow neglected and vacant lots.
"The community needs, due to living in an unincorporated area of Harris County, a grassroots effort of committed individuals who own or do business in the Cy-Fair community to take action on their behalf," committee chairman Jason Culpepper said in a press release. "Committee members, like others, noticed a considerable amount of vacant retail space in and around Cy-Fair, specifically around the Jones Road and FM 1960 corridor.
"Once a month, 10 volunteers conduct action days, sharing information about the project with business owners along the Jones Road corridor and finding advocates to help remove illegal bandit signs, address neglected landscaping, remove signs that cause safety hazards by obstructing drivers views, remove trash and maintain storefronts to increase curb appeal. We need the overall esthetics to reflect the residential, mid- to high-level demographics represented throughout our neighborhoods."
The committee also intends to educate and provide awareness toward community beautification.
