- The Village of Spring Hill, Inc. celebrated its tenth anniversary! A reception was held in April for major donors at Byrne Hall on the campus of Spring Hill College, the site of our first community meeting ten years ago. The April 29 Sidewalk-A-Thon was followed by a family celebration on Spring Hill College’s Dorn Field, a Screen on the Green movie, and a fabulous fireworks display.
- City Council Members Joel Daves and Gina Gregory committed 2016 Capital Improvement Plan funds to “The McGregor Project.” This project, initiated by TVSH, will include curb, gutter, and sidewalk infrastructure along both sides of South McGregor Avenue from Old Shell Road to Dauphin Street and also roadway resurfacing. Through community support $90,000 was raised for TVSH’s commitment to the sidewalk portion of the project.
- A $200,000 State of Alabama TAP (Transportation Alternative Program) grant was awarded to The Village of Spring Hill, Inc. for sidewalks on the north side of Bit and Spur Road from Old Shell Road to University Boulevard. Construction is expected to begin in the fall of 2017.
- Twelve (12) live oaks were planted along the perimeter of the McGregor Avenue/Museum Drive roundabout to continue the sequence of oaks planted on Museum Drive in partnership with Keep Mobile Beautiful over eight years ago.
- Ninety-eight (98) Ligustrum were planted along the EMA (Emergency Management Agency) fence line and the Auburn University Ornamental Horticulture Research Center fence line, completing the first phase of the landscape plan for the area of the roundabout at north McGregor Avenue and Museum Drive.
