In collaboration with the new Good to Great Neighborhood Program, Life Bridge Church and City are partnering in an effort to clean and beautify city parks, beginning with Papp Park on the Taylor’s northwest corner.
The “Pilot Clean Up” will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 16. It will run until 3 p.m. Volunteers will meet at the pavilion located behind the Major Division field (in the center of park). Some of the work being done will be debris clean-up, mulch spreading, trimming and painting. The City of Taylor Parks Maintenance will also provide help leading the cleanup efforts.
The Good to Great program maximizes the strength and focus of community improvement by using the various departments of the City to simultaneously concentrate on issues like beautification, parks, signs, trees, utilities, roads, sanitation, related neighborhood businesses and even public safety on a given area.
Papp Park, Wick Road at Westlake, is located adjacent to the Pilot Area of the Good to Great Program, which was recently completed and encompassed the area between Westlake, Goddard, Beech Daly and Haig Streets. City crews are now working on Good2Great Area #2, between Monroe, Van Born, Pelham and I-94.
