Lufkin Landscape Taskforce Wins Beautification Award
[Lufkin, TX – April 9, 2019] Angelina Beautiful/Clean (AB/C) honored the Lufkin Landscape Taskforce with a Beautification Award. An award presentation took place at their most recent completed project on Gaslight Boulevard in Lufkin.
The Beautification Award is an environmental award program that recognizes individuals, organizations and businesses that have demonstrated exceptional leadership in protecting or enhancing our local environment. This is in recognition of achievement in helping to beautify the Angelina County area by landscaping, building improvement and other means which enhances the beauty of our Deep East Texas community.
The Lufkin Landscape Taskforce was recognized for their achievement in investing into our local economy with this award from Angelina Beautiful/Clean and Keep Lufkin Beautiful. The Gaslight Boulevard project spanned multiple years and encompassed all the medians in that medical corridor. The roadway sees over 100,000 visitors each year from not only Angelina County but many other surrounding counties as well who come to seek medical services.
Per Jennifer La Corte, AB/C Executive Director, “Landscaping is so much more than an afterthought. This project by the Lufkin Landscape Taskforce enables locals and visitors alike to appreciate the beauty that our part of Texas has to offer, especially during a time of need when they are seeking medical care. The landscaping completed on the center medians helps bolster health benefits in an intrinsic way and there’s nothing more beautiful than that.”
