ADOPT-A-STREET PROGRAM - PINEHURST 2-12-2013
The City Council of Pinehurst recognized Creative Upholstery on Martin Street as the latest member of the Adopt-A-Street program in the City. Martin Street between Strickland and Park Ave is also called “Snake Road” because of its curves roughly paralleling Adams Bayou, and has been a favorite of litterers for years.
Keep Orange County Beautiful recruited Rosemary Vasquez, owner of Creative Upholstery, to step up and clean the street in front of her business. Ms Vasquez said, “A big part of our job at Creative Upholstery is to clean up messes created by others. You wouldn’t believe some of the disaster cases we have turned into beautiful seating areas. So it was just a natural for us to extend out into the community and help to clean up the messes left behind by litterers on our street.”
The City will be putting signs up on Snake Road at Strickland and at Park Avenue identifying the area as one adopted by Creative Upholstery. Shown with the signs in the photo is Rosemary Vasquez, owner, shaking hands with Mayor Joseph L. "Pete" Runnels. Also present were two board members from Keep Orange County Beautiful: Harry Vine, Code Enforcement Officer for Pinehurst, and J David Derosier
