Beautification Sign & Post Project Yancey Avenue

If you notice something beautiful on the corner you live on it is the work of the Capitol Heights Civic Association, Inc. This is what we were able to do for our 2023 grant made available from the City of Montgomery Neighborhood Services Annual Grant available to qualifying neighborhoods. There is a lot of training requirements from our association and the application is made by our association. CHCA, Inc. is responsible for the upkeep of these signs poles and it they are knocked down from traffic accidents it is our association that has to supply a replacement pole or repair the damaged pole with the city providing the street signs and traffic directions of each corner that we vote to add to our project.

It is truly a love of our community by those on the Board of Directors and General Membership of the Capitol Heights Civic Association that fuels this project. We have installed over 30 of these beautiful vintage poles with signage around the entire business and residential border of Capitol Heights and Avenues South of Madison Avenue and North of Madison Avenue on St. Charles, Winona Avenue, and for 2023 we have started on Yancey Avenue. We have applied for another grant for continuation of the project heading North to McKinley Avenue for the 2024 Annual grant time period. I hope the project will continue until we have completed every intersection in Capitol Heights with some architecually correct Vintage posts. All of these improvements to the community are designed exclusively for us by Gowan Iron the designer that worked with the City of Montgomery for the design standards, fabrication here in Montgomery. Using a local business is important to the leadership of CHCA so we support local creation and labor by local business where possible.

The Capitol Heights Civic Association, Inc. has received from the City of Montgomery a grant to continue our Beautification Sign & Post project for 2022. Mayor Reed congratulated us on our project for Capitol Heights as recipients of the Neighborhood Services grants 2022 at the City Council meeting on Tuesday April 5th at City Hall Auditorium 103 North Perry St. We are excited about this opportunity to showcase our community. This is the 4th year we have successfully qualified for this very important grant source to enhance the streetscape throughout Capitol Heights and beautify our neighborhood.

We have just completed Winona Avenue this last week of May 2022 with eight (8) additional vintage post and signage. Winona Avenue has a lot of Capitol Heights History with its own Local Historic Designation and a waymark for the Capitol Heights Elementary School. See Waymarking.com Capitol Heights Elementary School for details of this community signage. We have similar signage about Capitol Heights Town at Lewis Armstrong Memorial Park on Historic Madison Avenue.
