Review for Preservation Yazoo, Yazoo City, MS, USA
The Restoration and Beautification Foundation is a non profit 501(c)3
organizationas a grass root lobby to clean up Yazoo City,
Mississippi. We have made preservation a prioriy;Advocating the enforcemet of the City ordinances which exist to protect the city, and
The Historic District .
Our restorations include properties in the Historic District .We have comandeered the availability to purchase and restore several historic houses to potential buyers.
WE HAVE RECENTLY PURCHASED THE PUGH BLUNDELL HOUSE WHICH IS A LANDMARK PROPERTY ON THE LIST OF ENDANGERED HOUSES IN MISSISSIPPI. IT WILL BECOME THE PUGH BLUNDELL
EDUCATION CENTER. WE ARE RAISING FUNDS FOR THE IMMEDIATE
RESTORATION OF THIS PROPERTY. This effort will embrace all citizens and cause citizens to embrace the vision of a stronger comunity.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
observing the impact of revised ordinnces which are being enforced. The results will be a greater sense of pride and is making our cty more livaBLE.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
raise more funds as there is a lack of capital in our city. If we can clean up our city, new industry will move in and jobs will become available. We need to let people know about us.
