BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Months after the #KeepBakerBeautiful initiative began and produced obvious results in the community, the Baker City Council has finally formally adopted it.
The initiative has seen success in the following three key areas, according to a press release from the City of Baker:
- Removing and/or eliminating salvaged and inoperable vehicles that are currently in view of the public: This includes all salvaged or inoperable vehicles which are parked on lawns, under carports, in driveways or on the street.
- Removing and/or trimming excessive grass, weeds trees or other vegetation: Grass must be less than 12 inches high on any property or premises.
- Removing and eliminating litter, garbage, refuse and rubbish: This includes commercial and noncommercial handbills, temporary signs, any printed and written privately or commercially produced signs that have been deemed to be inappropriately placed in violation of Baker City Ordinances.
“We appreciate that our community supports the ideal that the appearance of the City of Baker is important,” the press release reads. “We are pleased that the ongoing action being taken for improvements to the City’s active and passive spaces making them more vibrant, safer, more accessible and inclusive of all ages presents a great opportunity for volunteerism addressing this critical safety need.”
