Alton Park Beautification Project needing sponsors

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn (WDEF) – The Net Resource Foundation is looking for individuals or businesses to help sponsor park benches. 

These benches are $700 and are part of a beautification project called the Hughes project in the South Chattanooga community. 

“This project is going to beautify one block of Hughes avenue. It’s going to include an extension of our community garden, meditation area, a stage , trees and maybe a play area here,” says Raquetta Dotley, Executive director of the Net Resources Foundation.

Executive director of the Net Resources Foundation says the project is estimated to cost around $52,000 and the ideas for the project came from within the community. 

“This stems from community input. It stems from people wanting to see south chattanooga have more investment into it. When you think about the things that are currently coming into our community. There is time for investment. There is time to revitalize this community. That is what this is about. We want to add on to what is already happening to make this community more beautiful,” says Dotley. 

 The project is set to be completed in the fall of this year.
