Lot clean-up begins

The Route 65 entrance to Bellevue is about to become a whole lot more welcoming and attractive. Last Saturday, volunteers organized by Mayor Emily Marburger began the arduous task of cleaning up a long-neglected, vacant lot that sits directly behind the “Live, Worship, Shop” sign at the corner of Meade and West Riverview evenues. Because the lot is privately owned, it is illegal for tax dollars to be spent on the project. The lot currently is owned by the estate of a Bellevue woman, which has allowed the clean-up to take place.Volunteers hope to landscape the lot, possibly with a butterfly garden.
