Revitalize Comanche Plans Town Entrance

It’s a piece of property that would be considered out of code anywhere in the civilized world, but with the help of some private money (for now*) Revitalize Comanche is very, very excited to have it.  Why? Because the group wants to build a gorgeous entrance into the town of Comanche on it.

Of course, before that can happen, there is a mountain of work to be done, and today Eddie and Brent were hard, hard at it, having to cut a path into the mess before anything else can be done.

There is untold brush, logs, limbs, and trees to cut.

And early summer rains made sure that the weeds are more than head high!

Cliff and Robert even came over to check out the progress and see what all needs doing. What doesn't need doing?

Since Revitalize does not have the manpower to accomplish the huge task alone, be prepared to be asked to do some heavy manual labor. The group needs people who can do heavy manual labor; it also will need a dozer and someone to operate it in the fairly near future.

It will be a while, but eventually Revitalize Comanche has plans for a Native American scene that let’s those driving 377/67 that they have entered what was once called the Upper Leon River Country, the hunting ground of the fierce Comanche Indians.

*Once the property is cleared, landscaped, and the scene in place, Revitalize Comanche will be meeting with both the city and the EDC.  Obviously, the property will at that time be something that the town should own and maintain itself.  The selling price will be the same price as was the buying price, $8,000.00.
