Keep Dickinson Beautiful received a grant from Keep America Beautiful’s Community Restoration and Resiliency Fund. KDB partnered with Amegy Bank during a parking lot expansion to use part of that space for a Park-let. A Park-let is a small seating area or green space created as a public amenity on or alongside a sidewalk.
KDB has also placed a plaque on the Park-let site that reads “There was devastation from the disaster but now there is beauty in the recovery.” This Park-let is dedicated to the heroes of Hurricane Harvey. Created in partnership with Amegy Bank, Keep America Beautiful and Keep Dickinson Beautiful.
To everyone’s surprise, Amegy Bank donated the funds back to the City to be used toward more Harvey recovery efforts. Thank you Keep America Beautiful, and Amegy Bank, for supporting Keep Dickinson Beautiful and citizens in their hurricane recovery efforts.
