Approximately 59 members of the Glendale community met with Charlestown city officials this week regarding planned improvements to their subdivision. Glendale is the largest subdivision in Charlestown and is comprised of roughly 400 homes and comprises around 12% of the City’s population.
“Glendale residents were invited to attend an informational meeting about upcoming enhancements to the streetscape in their community. The project is to include adding decorative street lamps and street signs, repairing curbs, installing sidewalks and repaving streets. This investment in Glendale is intended to increase safety and preserve property values. The streetscape project, combined with Glendale Community Park, currently under construction, and Knoebel Park on Church Street help sustain the quality of place that exists in the Glendale area.
City Services Director Ben Ledbetter, in the picture, displayed a composite photo showing the improvements. The city has applied for a grant from the state that would help speed things up a bit, but with or without the grant the city wants to move forward with the project. Police Chief McDonald, Councilman J.T. Cox, Councilman Mike Vaughn, and Mayor Bob were also on hand to answer questions.” – City of Charlestown
According to City officials, approximately 400 letters were sent out to Glendale residents.
