Lantana Cares Funds Beautification Projects
Lantana Cares recently funded three beautification projects in the community through grants from the Lantana Educational/Charitable Foundation.
An 840-foot stretch of median along FM 407 at the community’s main entrance will be landscaped and maintained by Gold Landscaping with a water-wise xeriscape design.
Fifteen trees were added in the median of Lantana Trail near Stacee Lane in front of the North Amenity Center.
The Lantana Cares board also approved plans to add landscape and walkways to a triangular portion of land adjacent to Lantana at the FM 407/Hilltop Road intersection across from Tractor Supply Company.
Special thanks to Susan Kennedy of Ryno Lawn Care for the donation of a xeriscape design, and to Gold Landscape for the donation of benches along the new walkway.
Lantana Cares, a local 501c3 nonprofit, was established in 2016 by residents of Lantana for resident-empowered beautification, education, and recreation in the Lantana community.
