Spring 2016 Update from Streetscape Committee
The “Streetscape” Committee is a volunteer group that receives funding from City Council for beautification projects. One of their initiatives is a program called “Chestermere in Bloom”, a spin-off of the Canadian Communities in Bloom competition. Through the Chestermere in Bloom program the committee hopes to foster a feeling of civic pride by inviting residents and businesses to beautify their outdoors spaces. This spring the committee has already been busy promoting “Chestermere In Bloom”. Richard Plummer, the Vice Chairman of Streetscape, has made presentations to the Chamber of Commerce in February and to the Whitecappers Senior's Association in April.
An exciting addition this year will be local businesses. The City of Chestermere’s Parks Department has also come up with a simple and easy way for businesses to participate through their flower planter initiative and some of the committee members also helped in the selection of a logo which will be used for years to come. The Parks team also coordinated installing tables outside the library and the installation of two birdhouses in our Rose Garden.
We look forward to “Chestermere In Bloom” to be bigger and better than last year. Look for nominations sheets to be located at the information desk in the Municipal Office or e-mail your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Watch out for more information here that's coming in May, with the kickoff event on Wednesday, June 1st 2016 at 10:30 a.m. at City Hall.
