A Message From the Chairman
2019 has proved to be an exciting year so far for the Five Corners District. We continue to make significant progress on projects that directly impact our community and our district continues to be one of the safest areas of the city, in part due to our contract with S.E.A.L. security patrol. Because of their effectiveness in reducing crime, we increased this year’s budget for security for added benefit.
The Tri-Party Agreement with TIRZ 9 and TIRZ 25 project implementations kick-off in the last quarter of the year with the completion of the professional engineering service work on key intersections and these which will be upgraded with new landscaping and district markers at:
- West Orem and South Post Oak
- West Fuqua and South Post Oak
- Hiram Clarke and West Fuqua
In addition, recess LED lighting, and painted columns underneath HWY 90 will mark the entrance to the Five Corners District at the main thoroughfare of South Post Oak and South Main. This project has a completion date of early 2020. To see all of the projects visit the 5 Projects to Follow page at the website and plan to join us at our Community Engagement Meetings August 15 and October 17 at the Hiram-Clarke Multi-Service center to learn more.
Our Business Beautification Recognition Program continues to encourage and thank area businesses that keep their properties clean, safe and attractive. These recognized businesses have agreed to maintain trash-free storefronts, and make any needed repairs such as removing graffiti and bandit signs (signs illegally displayed on the streets), fixing potholes, and much more. The district also aids businesses with these problems through our graffiti abatement program, and the district’s porter service which has removed tons of litter and bandit signs around the community. We believe that recognizing our outstanding businesses will foster community pride and attract the quality of businesses the community desires. We hope to continue growing the program in 2020 and beyond.
We look forward to hearing from the community any time you have a suggestion or ideas about how we can continue to work together to keep our community safe, clean, and green.
Chairman of the Board of Directors
