Housing Task Force Prepares For 2014

The City's Housing Task Force is already planning for next year's Sanford Block Party. The event has been tentatively set for April 26, 2014.

The committee has chosen Hawkins Avenue to receive a day of cleaning up and beautification. Just like in years past, volunteers, municipal staff, City and County officials, and others will work together to make the chosen portion of the street more attractive to passers by.

While task force members work on confirming dates and lead groups for the future block party, the City's Appearance Commission has selected a residence from each of the past Sanford Block Party events to receive a beautification award.

The award was given to the residents who did the best job of maintaining the work done on their residence during their block party. There is an award for a home on Charlotte Avenue, on McIver Street, and on Maple Avenue.

The awards will be in the form of a sign for the residents to post in their yards. You can expect to see the signs later this fall.
