The Whitely Community Council furthers its Year of Color Campaign by gaining approval from the Muncie Fire Department to paint fire hydrants in the community. This is the council’s first step in gaining access to community property for its beautification efforts.
The campaign focuses on the integration of Whitely’s pastel color palette. The color palette represents the Centennial Place properties, which are a distinctive attribute in the community.
The implementation of the campaign relies on collaboration between local organizations, like the City of Muncie, and community members.
East Centennial Avenue and Dr. M.L.K Jr. Boulevard will be the introduction sites for the Year of Color. Fire hydrants, private homes and local businesses will also wear the pastel colors once implementation takes place.
To track the development of the campaign follow Whitely Community Council on Facebook or go to http://whitelycc.org/.
