FRIENDS OF ATWATER VILLAGE AND THE ATWATER VILLAGE CHAMBER TEAM UP TO MAKE OUR VILLAGE “SPARKLE & SHINE”

Atwater Village community groups awarded beautification grants through L.A. City Council President Eric Garcetti’s “Clean & Connected Communities” initiative

Atwater Village, CA – Los Angeles City Council President Eric Garcetti initiated a community beautification grant program for communities within Council District 13, which includes Atwater Village. The grant initiative, titled “Clean and Connected Communities,” has the vision of beautifying and improving neighborhoods while encouraging community collaboration.

As part of a team effort the Atwater Village Chamber of Commerce and Friends of Atwater Village (FAV) was awarded a $2,500 grant for their “Make ‘em Sparkle  Make ‘em Shine” beautification project. This joint project will focus on sprucing up the commercial corridors of Glendale Blvd and Fletcher Dr. “Make ‘em Sparkle  Make ‘em Shine” will entail steam cleaning, repairing and painting of the historic tile trash receptacles; as well as repainting and replanting the plant containers all along Glendale Blvd. Fletcher Dr will get its graffiti abatement murals cleaned and touched up – including a fresh application of anti-graffiti coating. The river rock parkway at the corner of Larga Ave and Fletcher Dr will also get weeded and cleaned. This spruce up will take place in conjunction with a neighborhood wide cleanup scheduled for the fall.

The Atwater Village Neighborhood Council was also awarded a separate grant and will be working on improving and beautifying the landscaping of the median down Glendale Blvd.
