Talented Scout

Last weekend, Boy Scout Ben Eastman from Troop 29 completed his community project towards his Eagle Scout designation. The project was to create a 20-foot landscape border around the empty oil lot at 33rd Street and Atlantic Avenue. As a partnership with the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association, Signal Hill Petroleum, the Long Beach Redevelopment Agency (which provided the funding), and the 7th District Council Office, John Royce from Cal Heights Releaf created the landscape design and helped Eastman coordinate the project. Royce was on site both Saturday and Sunday planting and helping the Scout to coordinate the volunteers who helped with this project.
