Keep Longview Beautiful has long sustained the traffic median at the confluence of Judson Road and North Fredonia Street. In 2012 the Board of Directors took on the quantitative task of updating the area to bolster pride for our residents and help make our city more attractive to visitors. Keep Longview Beautiful feels strongly this should be a ‘showcase’ area for our community that is not only beautiful but environmentally sustainable.
As with all projects, Keep Longview Beautiful is dependent upon strong community partners. A premier local outdoor design firm, Tucker and Associates, furnished three improvement options for the Board of Directors to select from. The City of Longview committed help for irrigation and mowing and AEP Swepco cleaned up and enhanced the electrical needs for the median to accommodate this project. Ronnie Rice and Morrison Supply contributed money for the first batch of spring flowers and Rob Holloway of New Orleans Garden Nursery helped with planning flower beds and acquiring needed plants. Each of these civic heroes continues to be an alliance to Judson Median and our community.
