Wanted: New Leader for Scenic Streets
Scenic Streets is looking for a new leader. Peter Lund, who successfully led Scenic Streets for the past five years, is leaving to pursue new opportunities. Under Peter's strong leadership, Scenic Streets completed numerous complex community projects, including beautification projects at the Claremont Highway 24 on-ramp and off-ramp as well as DaVita Dialysis center landscaping on the corner of Claremont and Clifton. (For the full list of projects and to learn the history of Scenic Streets, visit www.scenicstreets.com). I was pleased to be one of the volunteers for the Hwy 24 on-ramp some four years ago.
Currently, Scenic Streets is working on completing the Hardy Dog Park project. With great help from City staff at the Public Works Department, it looks like this project will be able to break ground before the end of the year. The park's upkeep will transition to the newly formed Hardy Dog Park Patrons Group. We look forward to the completion of this project, on which my office has had the pleasure to work with Peter and city staff.
