From Keep Carbondale Beautiful. Always glad to see a residence or business in town notice for the effort it/they puts into making the spot more attractive:
Sewer line work in the front yard usually leaves a mess. But some home-owners turn it into an opportunity. At 301 Wedgewood, Virginia Gregory put in a unique sculpture and surrounded it with flowers and greenery, earning a Bright Spot Award from the Keep Carbondale Beautiful board. The sculpture was done by Kathi Borrego, a friend in Oregon, and Greenridge Landscaping did the heavy lifting. “They put in a ton of work, and a lot of nice landscaping,” in the words of the nominator. Besides the sewer line mess, Mrs. Gregory had another motivation: “Once you paint the garage door mustard yellow, …. Fortunately, chrysanthemums come in that color.”
The KCB Board selects businesses or residences to receive the Bright Spot Award for enhancing the beauty of our community by means of revitalization of property, new construction, plantings and beautification, upkeep and maintenance, or rehabilitation.
