PERTH AMBOY–City officials and volunteers from various Perth Amboy business organizations will join forces today on a project to beautify the southeast corner of the intersection of Smith Street and Convery Boulevard, an area that is considered to be the primary gateway to the city.
Led by Mayor Wilda Diaz, city officials and volunteers from the city’s Business Improvement District (BID), Urban Enterprise Zone (UEZ), Chamber of Commerce and Merchants Association (PAMA) will gather at 10 a.m. at the site to landscape, remove deteriorated fencing and decorate evergreens with holiday lights.
The former Celotex Corp. property is the site of a city-owned billboard that will present a holiday shopping message from the city as part of the beautification project, said Helga Van Eckert, executive director of the city’s Office of Economic/Community Development, Redevelopment, UEZ and BID.
“We are delighted that city officials and volunteers from city business organizations will be working together for the betterment of the city,” Diaz said. “Most motorists entering the city have to pass through this intersection. We want to leave residents and visitors alike with a message filled with the holiday spirit.”
