This team has been very active, initiating teams to pull invasive knapweed, creating a contest to encourage property owners to spruce up their lands and buildings and coming up with a great slogan, “Put the Shine on La Pine!”

A beautiful thriving La Pine made possible by community pride

Shine on La Pine encourages the community to participate in economic vitality through beautification by educating, encouraging, and recognizing community efforts to improve and beautify La Pine

Put the Shine on La Pine

The Economic Vitality Roadmap Beautification Team movement is called “Put the Shine on La Pine”, and it’s catching on!

PART I – The first part of this project focuses our community on the eradication of Spotted Knapweed – an invasive and destructive weed. We will be conducting weed pulls during the summer while educating the public about its dangers.

Contact Kim to learn more about knapweed. 541-536-1312

PART II – Take the Pledge! This focus will be positive reinforcement of our community businesses and agencies who present themselves in a way that shows La Pine at its best. November of 2016 will be a “Month of Recognition”. The recognition categories are Best in Façade, Most Attractive Curb Appeal, Best Environmental Practices and Best in Improvements and more!

Businesses who want to contribute to a positive and attractive image will be asked to sign a pledge based on:

• Maintaining & Expanding Current Efforts
• Encouraging Neighbors
• Utilizing Existing Resources

Take a look at your business – what do your customers see? Ask yourself “What small steps can I take to improve the appearance of my business?”

For more information call Dennis at 541-213-1143 or Linda at 541-536-2049

We are asking our business community to join the project by putting the shine on La Pine. We are striving to clean up our town and show our local townspeople and visitors that La Pine is a growing and vibrant community! Check us out on Facebook at “Put the Shine on La Pine”.

Stay tuned, there’s more to come!
