Auburn Beautification Commission & Downtown Auburn BID Upcoming Projects
Local organizations and individuals dedicated to making the City look better are gearing up for the summer season. According to the chairman of the Auburn Beautification Commission, this season will see some of the biggest projects yet, since their beginnings three years ago.
Commission chair Jim Kent told members at a City Council meeting about the Commission’s plans for this year, which include multiple public art projects and the rehabilitation of a small city park.
“I think we’ve made tremendous progress,” Kent said of the organization, which was founded as a city entity in 2007 before branching off as an independent not-for-profit.
The Commission sponsored a sculpture contest over the winter, and Kent said they received four proposals. The winning sculpture, created by Audrey Iwanicki, will be assembled during Founders Day, June 12th at the Exchange Street Mall, where it will remain for the public to view. (more…)
