Here's What's Been Happening In Georgetown
Part of being a committed and effective Georgetown realtor is staying involved on what's going on in Georgetown Here is a brief review of the Georgetown town meeting incase you missed it!
The city website redesign will be up by spring. This year, due to popular demand, the Poppy festival will be opening one day early, on Friday night April 23/25/26. The events are free and you can bring your own chair or reserve a table near the front.
The city has been experimenting with solar powered trash compactors and recycling compactors which hold 150 gallons of trash - they work so well they have invested in a few more and we should start to see them around town. Currently they are only at the playscape.
Historical documentation of the Meridian Highway is under way (Austin avenue), you can visit the cities website to discover how to submit pictures and other documentation concerning this road.
Interested in rehabilitating a historic building you work out of in downtown? State (25%) and federal (20%) tax credits available.
Soon, the city’s population will be over 50,000 and the city will be responsible for providing their own public transportation - now in talks with cap metro on partnering for transportation solutions.
The city is in the beginning stages of planning a 'mirror park' of San Gabriel on the west side of town - it will probably take 10-20 yrs to develop. They have already purchased some land - you can make comments on the city’s website, the name of the forum is Build West Side
Thursday February 5th, join southwestern for an historic photograph celebrating their 175th year along with lunch, birthday cake, and other festivities. Find out more on the SWU website.
First Friday's are back starting in February!
GEORGETOWN IS HAVING ANOTHER WOMEN'S NIGHT OUT!
The Georgetown Association is planning another “Women’s Night Out” in March. Keep an eye on their website for more information.
As always, the library has tons of upcoming events for children and adults. The Teddy bear sleepover is a huge hit with the kids every year and is coming soon. Also, adults can play a life size “Clue” for Valentines Day this year. See the library’s website for more information and to sign up.
I love that Georgetown has town meetings that anyone can attend and a city that still cares about getting information out to its inhabitants. Town meetings where you can sip coffee and sit across the table from other involved citizens while you listen to all the newest developments in the town where you live is just one reason I love this place! If you are new to town or thinking of moving here and would like some more information – don’t hesitate to contact my team - we are here to serve!
