The first Piedmont Heights Alliance get into action effort! Beautify PiHi!
Thank you to James Hurley Designs for spearheading this initiative and showing how much you care for the neighborhood. James was inspired when friends mentioned that entering the neighborhood off of I-85, they would have never known it was a thriving part of town because of the overgrown weeds and trash.
James brought the idea for media clean up to the Piedmont Heights Alliance board of directors in early May. "What a great way to show some progress when life seems to be on pause due to COVID" said PiHi Alliance president Bob Glascock of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
PiHi Alliance focused on the exit and entrances on Monroe Drive as well as Monroe and Piedmont Road intersections. Over the course of the entire day, over 16 people volunteered their time to pick up trash, pull weeds, expose sidewalks, paint curbs and meet business neighbors in the area. James Hurley Designs sponsored a landscape crew to clean up curbs, mow grass and haul away debris.
Thank you to Nakato Japanese Restaurant for bringing out a crew first thing in the morning and cleaning up Piedmont and Monroe intersection medias.
Thank you to Piedmont Heights Civic Association, Preferred Office, idealDESIGN,inc and Bob Glascock | Coldwell Banker Residential for cleaning up over 10 bags of trash from the Monroe and I-85 exit/entrance medians.
Thank you to Roxx Tavern, 1824 Cheshire Bridge, for providing lunch to the hardworking crew. The owner, Dean, stopped by during clean up and extended the offer of lunch to show his appreciation!
It takes initiative, caring and time to make a difference. For more photos of the clean up, visit Beautify PiHi.
