Makeover for Moreland Avenue
Moreland Avenue is getting a makeover.
The DeKalb Board of Commissioners approved a $187,450 contract to Ed Castro Landscape, Inc. on Aug. 28 to landscape the median between Bailey Street to south of Cedar Grove Road.
The company will add new ground cover and plant shrubbery along the route, which is also State Route 42.
Commissioner Larry Johnson, whose District 3 includes the area, said he is committed to its revitalization efforts.
"Moreland Avenue is a gateway into DeKalb from neighboring counties and we should do all we can to make this area inviting and attractive to businesses and investors," he said after the vote.
Moreland Avenue is home to many industrially zoned properties and businesses adjacent to residential communities.
