|Keep West Monroe Beautiful busy these days|
Keep West Monroe Beautiful is involved with several beautification projects as well as an awareness campaign to remind residents to keep West Monroe clean.
The organization plays an active role in leading beautification projects in West Monroe, including promoting a healthy and litter free environment and increasing community awareness and litter education.
KWMB recently received funding from Keep Louisiana Beautiful, the statewide organization, to conduct several beautification projects within the city.
The KWMB board utilized the funding to replace trash receptacles in the downtown historic district of West Monroe.
Receptacles have already been placed along the sidewalks along Trenton Street, in the historic downtown commercial district of West Monroe.
KWMB also recently launched a litter campaign to remind residents that cigarette butts are litter, too.
The cigarette litter prevention program was funded through a grant from the national Keep America Beautiful organization.
KWMB president Rebecca Hall is excited about the funding and looks forward to future beautification projects.
"These new receptacles look nice and fit with the vintage style of the historic downtown area," Hall said. "During the past year, this area has experienced significant growth from welcoming new shops and hosting seasonal events, which results in more foot traffic. We wanted patrons to have easy access to the trash receptacles, so we have added some additional ones throughout the downtown area."
Upcoming projects for Keep West Monroe Beautiful include implementing an "Adopt-a-Spot" program, expanding paper and plastic recycling and producing the 2010 "Mayor's Poster Contest" calendar.
Keep West Monroe Beautiful is a volunteer-based service organization "dedicated to empowering individuals to take a greater responsibility in enhancing their community."
It coordinates, promotes, supports, encourages and advances community efforts "to improve the quality of life as it relates to beautification, litter education and reduction, while promoting public interest in maintaining a healthy, litter-free environment in West Monroe."
