A group of Ellison Bay residents are taking it upon itself to make their village a more beautiful place to be. Members of the Ellison Bay Beautification Project have already approached the Town of Liberty Grove Board to add features like crosswalks and speed boards to make it safer for non-motorized traffic. The focus is now to establish a town center where people can congregate and to improve its overall look and feel. Ellison Bay business owner and lifelong resident Carol Fitzgerald Ash is proud to be a part of a larger effort to improve the place they call home.
Currently in the works for the Ellison Bay Beautification Project is a large mural honoring the area’s love for art and nature and a green space featuring a butterfly garden.
