The Community Beautification Committee, consisting of Blackburn resident volunteers, has been hard at work since 2016, identifying big and small community beautification projects. We started small by installing 2 new benches – one on Bearbrook and one on Innes – near the Four Corners intersection and then tackled something big – really big – beautification of the 4 corners at the intersection of Innes, Bearbrook, and Glen Park! This is a multi-phase project and the first phase is the Amica corner. This was selected as the first corner to be addressed due to the enthusiasm and quick support of Amica management and Amica residents. We held the first community consultation on April 29, 2017 to generate ideas and receive direction. Based on this meeting, we engaged with Amica, a landscape contractor, a landscape designer, and an artist to develop a proposal for this corner. We held a second community consultation session on November 28, 2017 where we presented the proposed design for feedback from Hamlet residents.
A 3rd opportunity for community input was held before December 22, 2017. Click here to download our report of that consultation.
New volunteers are always welcome. If you wish to get involved in this project, or donate to this or other beautification projects in the Hamlet, please email email@example.com
