Subject: Residents 4 Arkansas announces partnership with city of Turrell
Residents 4 Arkansas is pleased to announce that our community improvement will continue within the city of Turrell, Several meetings with their city council and mayor have proven to be most productive. As such we're also pleased to announce that this initial work will commence on May 28th 2011 with the 1st annual "Great Turrell Cleanup!" The first phase of "Operation Revitalize Turrell" will consist of one major city supported cleanup each month, and continuing for the next six months. In addition to this, Residents 4 Arkansas will start the process of researching and contacting land-owners within the city, in an attempt to determine who owns and or maintains abandoned infrastructure(s) within the city limits. A direct quote from our director, Mr. Aden "It's our aim to begin clearing out vacant lots and establishing community gardens for residents to both enjoy and benefit from. This will provide the seniors and young people alike within the city access to healthy food at a relatively low cost." Mayor Spears and City Councilman Fain of Turrell have been an invaluable asset in regards to our efforts and we look forward to working with the city of Turrell in all future endeavors.It should also be known that Residents 4 Arkansas Inc. is providing all the food for the 2nd Annual "Give the Love Back to Turrell Day" on May 28th, to correspond with the the first cleanup effort.
