Fall Neighborhood Cleanup

October 4, 2018

It’s that time of year again! The Perry Housing Team and Houston County Habitat for Humanity will be hosting a fall neighborhood cleanup.  It will take place on Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018 in the Smoak neighborhood.  We will meet that morning at 8:00 a.m. at Perry High School on 1307 North Ave., Perry, GA 31069 for the cleanup and will finish at Noon with lunch and fellowship for our volunteers.   Sign up to volunteer at www.hocohabitat.org. In addition to the traditional cleanup, Mike Wells Towing is supporting our efforts by committing to pick up any abandoned vehicles in the Smoak neighborhood the week of the cleanup (Oct. 29-Nov. 3).  Give them a call at 478-987-7311 if you need their help!  Also, if you are in that neighborhood and unable to tend to your yard due to a disability or know a neighbor that is unable, please call our Code Compliance Officer, Danny Hicks, for assistance at 478-988-2704 or danny.hicks@perry-ga.gov.

Perry’s Wayfinding Initiative

April 24, 2015

The City of Perry is working on a wayfinding initiative that will help the community to develop and implement a signage system that is effective and efficient. Led by a Wayfinding Committee, the system that is ultimately developed will help direct people into town and, once in town, will help them find areas of interest. These areas of interest will range from public buildings and parks to historical and commercial sites. With assistance from the Middle Georgia Regional Commission we have completed an inventory of our existing signage (please follow link below to view). This inventory will help to identify needs and priorities and set the groundwork for the new system. http://www.mgrcmaps.org/Perry/Wayfinding/ If you have any questions or would like to participate in the wayfinding initiative please contact Mr. Robert Smith, Economic Development Director, at (478) 988-2757.
