United Neighbors Awards Beautification Grants

United Neighbors has awarded two beautification grants for 2013 to the GC-HHDA. One of the awards is for annual planting in the Gold Coast Park. Along with many perennials that adorn the park, these annuals add color and beauty to this pocket park. The second grant is for the purchase and distribution of yard waste bags, and the UN grant this year if for $250. Any Gold Coast resident can get yard waste bags as long as the supply lasts and do their personal yard clean up at no cost. An added advantage is the free city pick-up of these materials the first 2 weeks in April and from mid-October through November. At other times of year, residents must purchase stickers to attach to the yard waste bags.
