The fourth year of the City’s Good to Great Neighborhood Program is beginning and the immediate target is Area #20, which includes the neighborhoods between Pennsylvania, Eureka, Inkster, and Beech Daly roads. Introductory letters were mailed to residents in the area this week.
Meanwhile, there is still concrete and asphalt work being done in Area #16, near Taylor Parks Elementary School and Jaycee Park.
Good to Great 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. The goal is neighborhood improvement and compliance. During this effort the City welcomes comments and concerns. All feedback can be directed to Good to Great Program Coordinator Sam DiCicco at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please title your email “Good to Great” Program, Area #20.
As part of this program, the Taylor Police will be holding a meet-and-greet session with residents. This gathering will be held beginning at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 18, on the corner of Leroy and Kerstyn 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 the area.
G2G will offer free mulch for property enhancement. The City of Taylor have free mulch located in the dead ends of Stacey, Wellington, Sandee and McGuire streets. We will keep mulch there as long as it is being used, during the program. G2G also offers a discount tree program for replacements or additions of trees in the easement (between sidewalk and street). The City installs them in a bed of soft-edge mulch and provides a slow release watering bag per tree.
Anyone interested in more information on the discount easement tree program should email email@example.com and title it “tree program.” While this program is focused on the current G2G neighborhoods, we may be able to deal with requests from property owners in other parts of the community.
