A request to beautify the corner of Glade & Apple street has been made this is on the corner of the New Albany Middle School.  This is a heavy traffic area since the gym is used by the middle school and high school.  Laura asks you to take a few minutes to look at this area.  It will be discussed at our next meeting.
