Community Beautification Projects
Beautification efforts continue to take shape throughout Montezuma with a 2012 project focused on downtown beautification. Montezuma Community Development successfully raised more than $14,000 for the project, including grants received from the South Central Iowa Solid Waste Agency and Keep Iowa Beautiful. The City of Montezuma and Montezuma Light & Power also partnered financially in the project. Continued improvements will enhance the landscape design at each of the four gateways to the city, Highway 63 corridor, and other distinctive landmarks and historical monuments throughout the community. Montezuma Community Development has partnered with ISU Extension, Master Gardeners throughout Poweshiek County, Montezuma FFA Greenhouse, and other local volunteers to continue the project into 2013.
