Forestdale community gets a makeover

Posted: Updated:

County leaders held a neighborhood clean-up in the Forestdale area on Saturday. The cleanup was the first in a series throughout district one to help with the problems associated with lack of staff due to layoffs with the Jefferson County Roads and Transportation Department.

Commissioner George Bowman says, "It's a demonstration of the community coming together, leaders coming together, working together."

More than 100 volunteers helped spruce up Roberta Road, Roberta Circle and Swim Club Road areas. 

Bowman is working to have the County cleanup some of the main roads in the areas such as Daniel Payne and Cherry Avenue. 

Because Forestdale is so large, organizers are splitting the clean up in phases. The next phase of clean up will be in two weeks.
