JASPER — The Hamilton County Beautification and Preservation Inc. received a grant of more than $30,000 for the Central Avenue Walkway in Jasper.
Jennifer Hand, president of the Hamilton County Beautification and Preservation said she approached Sabal Trail Transmission four months ago for funding to get started on the landscaping and lighting for the walkway.
Hand received a $37,005 grant at the end of May.
The grant will be used for old fashioned lighting, landscaping, benches, water fountains, trash receptacles and stretching equipment for the walkway.
Hand wants to see the walkway completed for Christmas this year.
Hand said she is excited to see the ideas for the walkway become a reality.
Currently there is the start of landscaping but more trees and flowers will be added.
The Central Avenue Walkway project is a collaboration between Hamilton County Beautification and Preservation and the City of Jasper.
