GRANTS FOR SEASONAL COMMUNITIES TO IMPROVE THEIR APPEARANCE

Sullivan Renaissance Offers Clean-up Grants for Summer

May 9, 2005

[FERNDALE] – There is still time to apply for a Sullivan Renaissance 2005 seasonal community grant of $200.  The beautification program is offering a limited number of grants to summer camps, bungalow colonies and other seasonal communities in Sullivan County for projects that improve the appearance of their property.  

Eligible projects must be visible from the road.  Examples include: new signs; improvements to entry gates; planting gardens or barrels of flowers; screening of unattractive areas; landscaping buildings; fence painting; removing eyesores (piles of rubbish, old vehicles); cleaning up litter and trash.

Herb Fischman, one of those who helped form the Sullivan County Vacationers Association which represents seasonal operators, said the program gives seasonal communities a chance to make a difference in their appearance.  “Sullivan Renaissance is offering us the opportunity to beautify our properties and participate in the larger mission to cleanup Sullivan County,” he said, “This is a very good thing all around.”

Applications (including “before photos”) must be submitted by June 1.  The grants will be awarded before June 30.  Projects must be completed before August 8, when “after photos” and receipts are due.  Communities will be recognized at the Sullivan Renaissance Awards Celebration on Monday, August 15 at the CVI Building in Ferndale.

The mission of Sullivan Renaissance is to enhance the appearance and economic well being of Sullivan County, while building a sense of pride and spirit in the community.  Sullivan Renaissance encourages the participation of young people in its projects. 

Last year 13 seasonal communities took part in the program.
