City Center Partnership (CCP) Receives Grant from Columbia Green

U.S. Post Office on Assembly is Selected for Beautification Project

Columbia, SC – October 19, 2011 – City Center Partnership, the non-profit organization that manages the downtown Business Improvement District (BID), has been awarded a grant from Columbia Green. The $5,000 grant will be used for a landscaping and beautification project along Assembly Street in front of the U.S. Post Office.

City Center Partnership’s “yellow shirt” team will begin the beautification project at 9:00 am on Saturday, October 29. CCP will plant and maintain the green space until it’s established. Columbia Green’s members and volunteers from the Downtown Neighborhood Association will also participate in the planting. The one-day project entails plantings along the railings in front of the building, which is a space of approximately 1,400 square feet.

“We appreciate and enjoy all the work CCP does downtown and we know we'll have a long partnership with common goals,” said Ann Holtschlag, president of Columbia Green. “The beautiful hanging baskets that have graced downtown streets are evidence that our collaboration with CCP has wonderful results.”
