Great news! Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB) has recognized Keep The Colony Beautiful (KTCB) as a recipient of a 2021 Rebuilding Texas Fund Grant in the amount of $5,000.
KTCB plans to use the funds to renovate the landscaping in front of The Colony City Hall, much of which suffered during February’s winter storm.
- A volunteer event, in which a limited number of residents may sign-up to take part in the renovation project, is scheduled for 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 25, at City Hall, 6800 Main St. For more information or to sign up, visit our Eventbrite link.
In addition to The Colony, the affiliate communities of Abilene, Big Spring, Brushy Creek, Chandler, Victoria, and Whitesboro also received a Rebuilding Texas Fund Grant, largely for restoration and replanting projects after the February winter storms.
The Rebuilding Texas Fund, which was launched in 2017 after Hurricane Harvey, has provided support to affiliate communities to rebuild after natural disasters. This year’s grants were made possible by Keep America Beautiful through their Community Resiliency and Restoration Fund.
