The Church Street’s beautification pilot program kicked off on
June 6 with the NACL stilt walkers, NYS Assemblywoman Aileen
Gunther, Liberty Mayor Ron Stabak and exhibits by the Greater
Liberty Chamber of Commerce, Liberty Library, Jeff Bank and
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Sullivan County.
The program provided a face lift to the residences and parking
areas by planting flowers, cleaning up debris and other
neighborhood improvements while working toward a sense of beauty,
safety and inclusion. The project was initiated by the Sullivan
Renaissance Bilingual Advisory Committee and was designed to unify
landlords and tenants, help the businesses, and provide a friendly
neighborhood for the churches and residences.
