Operation Facelift


Operation Facelift is an ongoing beautification project in the historic Riverview District.

Many of the houses and yards in this area along the Alabama River have been neglected through the years, and among them is the house my grandmother lived in almost a century ago. Her family rented a bungalow along Water Avenue after moving down South from Ohio.

Now that a neighborhood association is active, there is new interest in cleaning up. You can see the bright red knock-out roses that have just been planted along View Street.

Its nice to see neighbors taking an interest in their neighborhoods. Those are signs I would not object seeing.

Lovely to see restoration taking place - whenever, wherever.
Sorry I haven't been commenting much lately - combination of life circumstances. SDP has had a 3rd birthday and you're invited to the party!
