Keep Natchitoches Beautiful awarded Keep Louisiana Beautiful beautification grant

Keep Natchitoches Beautiful (KNB) announced it has received a Keep Louisiana Beautiful (KBL) Beautification Grant to help enhance the University Parkway median at I-49.
KNB was awarded $5,000. The purpose of the Keep Louisiana Beautiful Beautification Grant is to create beautiful, well maintained gardens and plantings to promote community pride and improve the appearance of communities throughout Louisiana.
People are less likely to litter in areas that are well maintained and beautiful, so reducing litter in highly visible areas is an additional key driver of this grant. One of KLB’s key initiatives is to help build infrastructure that supports clean, beautiful communities. This grant will help support that initiative.
“We are extremely thankful and excited that we received this grant,” said Keep Natchitoches Beautiful Director, Alicia Christophe. “We are looking forward to getting started on this project. I believe beautifying the University Parkway median at I-49 will benefit our City since it is the first visual that tourists and locals see when they come into our community. People will look at it, and they will get a nice vibe about our City. It will be beautiful.”
KNB’s goal is to help reduce litter and to help beautify the City of Natchitoches.
