Posted on January 31, 2015 at 11:27 pm by Clay Curtin

On Saturday, Jan. 24, the Senior Center hosted a recognition breakfast for past award recipients and a kickoff meeting for the 2nd funding round of the Belle Haven Mini Grant Program. Forty-seven Belle Haven residents attended, including some of the 1st round grant recipients who provided positive feedback and shared their project stories. Some examples included construction of a new fence to keep young grandchildren from running into the street, the replacement of 1946-era hedges with new drought tolerant landscaping, and other inspiring stories of neighborhood residents who used this opportunity to make enhancements to their properties. In addition, board members from the Belle Haven Community Development Fund explained the application process, solicited ideas, and encouraged attendance at upcoming BHCDF-hosted Tech Workshops. Other resources available to applicants include a Microsoft Excel Basics seminar on Saturday, Feb.7, and important information on the City’s Lawn Be Gone rebate program.
