On Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017, the MAP Care for Your Neighbor Program successfully completed another community improvement project and helped a Monrovian in need. A property on Acadia Avenue, while well kept, had a few issues with the front landscape. Traditional code enforcement efforts were not necessarily going to solve the problem to gain compliance…so MAP stepped in.
The MAP “Care for Your Neighbor” Program jumped into action by coordinating community resources to help clean up and beautify the landscape. City staff partnered with MAP Leaders, the Volunteer Center and even brought out some family members to provide resources and assistance in the efforts. We planted succulent plants and spread mulch throughout the yard, and even installed some pavers and bricks that immediately spruced up the yard. The property owner, a lifelong Monrovian, expressed that she was extremely grateful for the help and for being part of such an amazing community.
Below are some before and after pictures of the project site. The Monrovia Area Partnership wants to thank everyone who was able to help to make this community improvement project another success for our Monrovia neighborhoods.
