Downtown Danville Partnership launches beautification effort

Homeowners and businesses in Danville are invited to participate in a new beautification effort started here before the upcoming Mayberry in the Midwest festival on May 17-18.

The Downtown Danville Partnership has formed a Main Street Beautification Committee to focus on beautifying the Main Street corridor through Danville and the Downtown Danville area.

“This initiative is a great way to show pride in your hometown and the place where you love to live,” said Jaime Bohler Smith, president of the Downtown Danville Partnership. “It will be a wonderful site for visitors coming to the festival or to our many other upcoming spring and summer events, and for other residents to see such a beautiful corridor right here in downtown Danville.”

Homeowners and business owners in the project area received letters last week asking them to join the Downtown Danville Partnership’s effort by sprucing up their properties before the festival. Specifically, homeowners are being asked to sweep away the grit and grime of winter from their sidewalks the weekend of May 3. Also as part of a “Flags & Flowers” campaign, homeowners and business owners are being asked to display patriotic flags or bunting at their homes or businesses from May 10-30 and to plant red geraniums, the official flower of the Town of Danville, in their landscaping, flower pots and hanging baskets.

“After a very, very long and hard winter, homes and businesses can always use a little bit of cleaning and sprucing up," said Sally Steward, vice president of the Downtown Danville Partnership and chair of the Main Street Beautification Committee. "This beautification campaign is a way to inspire folks in Danville to take pride in what a great hometown we have and make it a team effort to ready our town for warmer weather and the many events scheduled here. There are so many beautiful homes and businesses in Danville with great people living and working in them and we can’t wait to show off our hometown to our guests at the Mayberry in the Midwest festival and the many other spring and summer events. Many of these visitors will have never been to Danville before, so we want to make a fantastic first impression to bring those guests back for more of what we have to offer.”

All Danville residents who receive a water bill will also receive a flyer about the “Flags & Flowers” beautification campaign and are encouraged to participate as well.

“The more homes and businesses participating in this effort, the greater the impact and impression we will make,” Steward said.

To purchase flags or bunting, citizens or business owners may contact Jodi Semenick at the Danville Town Hall by calling 745-3001 before April 30 because quantities are limited.
