Does the city offer any grant money or support to neighborhoods trying to enhance their neighborhood's beautification. Our neighborhood is interested in beginning a gardening club and is looking for support in getting started ie. gardening costs/donations. Please advise. Thank you!

The City of Frisco does not currently offer any grant opportunities that support broad based neighborhood beautification or target the start up of a gardening club. I would offer the following recommendations in identifying resources for such an undertaking:

1. Contact local nurseries or landscape companies that might be interested in offering services or donating materials in exchange for marketing opportunities.
2. Contact the Frisco Garden Club for ideas and resources. The Frisco Garden Club is a well established garden club within the City of Frisco and they may be able to offer your neighborhood suggestions or ideas for starting their own club. You can check out their website at: http://gardencentral.org/texas/friscogarden/ for more information.

Best wishes in your efforts!
