In other business, council members heard a plan from Sandi Adams with Keep Chatsworth-Murray Beatiful to relocate and keep up flower pots in the city limits as part of a new beautification project for the city.
According to the flyer for the project:
“What: Positive change can start and flourish in your neighborhood … on your block … or simply by the individual actions you choose to take. It’s our mission to engage individuals to take greater responsibility of their community’s environment. The Mayor and City Council of Chatsworth recently approved the KCMB downtown Adopt-a-Spot project which involves the redesign and beautification of the city planters. The project, led by KCMB Beautification / Community Greening Chairman Sabrina Dant, begins immediately. All nine of the planters have been adopted by local individuals, businesses and organizations. The project engages volunteers who take small actions that can bring about a world of change.
Why: In partnership with individuals, neighborhood groups, civic organizations and local businesses, KCMB would like the community to take ownership, responsibility and pride in and of these public areas as well as make a visible impact in the community. KCMB brings people together to transform public spaces and beautify, build and sustain vibrant communities. We work with volunteers to take action in their communities through programs that deliver sustainable impact, are socially connected, environmentally healthy and economically sound.
For more information about the Adopt-a-Spot or other beautification projects, contact Sandi Adams at 706.517.0222 or Recycle4Georgia@yahoo.com.”
Council also heard from John Christian with Go Murray Arts about the possibility of expanding into the church building located next door to the center. Christian said the congregation had outgrown the location and was searching for another place to hold services.
Christian said obtaining the space would be beneficial for more arts classes and the outdoor stage storage.
