The Sunset Hill Neighborhood Association, which just reorganized about a year ago, is busy making its shared spaces beautiful.
The association bought 37 sign toppers with a grant from the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League. Two neighborhood residents, Steven Horton and Ellen Kreiger, donated the money to paint and buy plants for the planter in the median at the intersection of Tenth and Jefferson. Horton maintained the plants all summer, and Kreiger designed the logo and painted it.
The city meanwhile painted yellow stripes in that intersection, which is wonky because it was designed for streetcars in the early 20th Century.
The neighborhood association this weekend is planting donated trees along Tenth Street and Oak Cliff Boulevard. Meet at 8:45 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, at Calvary Church. Bring a shovel and a pal for a morning of community volunteerism.
