Blythe Bounces Back





History Logs

Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Blythe, CA

Total Budget: $7,000

Area of Focus: Community economic development

Activity Type: Community Development: Construction/Renovation

Summary: Rennovation of existing signage and creation of new signage to stimulate econimic development

The city of Blythe, CA, on the California -Arizona boarder has been in a serious economic decline for years. The poverty rate is at roughly 28%, more than double the national average. Yet, border town Blythe, residing on the I-10 conduit to Arizona has a unique opportunity to capture tourism dollars, through attracting travelers seeking food and gas as well as fun on the Colorado River. The City of Blythe has begun an initiative to improve the image: hiring muralists to improve deteriorating commercial buildings and sponsoring clean-up days. Rotary Club of Blythe would like to contribute to this effort by replacing 2 deteriorating "Welcome to Blythe" signs (one of which features the Rotary logo) on this I-10 conduit and by adding signage along the freeway which will draw attention to some of our agricultural accomplishments. We estimate the cost of the signage we will be replacing to be $2500 each and the new signs highlighting agricultural accomplishments to be $1000 each.
