The Eastmoor Beautification Committee is a group of dedicated resident volunteers who work to maintain our neighborhood green spaces.
For our traffic islands, which are considered City Parks by the City of Columbus Parks and Recreation, our goal is to maintain around the trees with weeding, mulching, and trimming of water shoots. We discourage any planting around the trees, as this has led to maintenance problems in the past. Last year, the City of Columbus cleaned and replanted the three large islands on “Little Broad” between Harding and Kellner, just south of Broad Street. This is a large area and will require a major volunteer effort on our part to maintain.
The Beautification Committee’s work is funded by your Eastmoor Civic Association dues, which covers mulch, watering the three big islands at Little Broad as needed, and fertilization, aeration, and grub control of the other islands. Weeding, mulching and trimming are done by Eastmoor volunteers, with the other items performed by a community landscaping company who is contracted and paid by the Eastmoor Civic Association. The City of Columbus mows the grass.
In addition to your dues, the Eastmoor Home & Garden Tour is a major fundraiser for the Eastmoor Civic Association. The next tour will be held in May of 2019, and is organized by the Beautification Committee.
