M-55 to be lined with flowers

HOUGHTON LAKE – A group of Houghton Lake citizens expressed concerns about the appearance of the town.

In response, Robert Pollard created a Facebook group called Houghton Lake, M 55 Beautification Committee which generated a great interest to address the issue. Creative and interesting ideas to improve the area emerged and volunteers began to sign up for the project.

The group’s first project is to plant flowers along the sidewalks from Townline Road all the way to M-18. The flowers will provide beauty, promote community pride, and display a cohesive look along M-55. The group also encourages local clubs and businesses to donate to fund the project or to help with the initial planting.

The beautification group is working with the Roscommon County Economic Development Corporation and hope to secure grants for future improvement projects. These may include remediating blight, light pole holiday decorations, art installations and more.

If you are interested in assisting please join the Houghton Lake M 55 Beautification Committee on Facebook, or contact Mary Dicker at mtchbx1@comst.net.
