“Beautification” has been a buzzword in The Colony for many years. The City Council, Keep The Colony Beautiful Board, and the residents they serve prioritize programs and services aimed at neighborhood enhancement. With those goals in mind, the City of The Colony offers a tool-lending program called, The Colony Cares, in which residents may checkout a variety of common home-improvement tools for use on their property – completely FREE of charge!
How It Works
The Colony Cares is the first program of its kind in North Texas. It is overseen by the city’s Community Image Department as an extension of its Volunteer Assistance Program. The Colony Cares is designed to help those residents who have the ability to keep their homes maintained but not the means. The City intends for this program to help fill in the gaps for those homeowners who may not have big projects that qualify for the Volunteer Assistance Program but could still use some help with the upkeep of their home. The program is also available to volunteer groups working on neighborhood projects, such as Scout Troops, church groups, and/or students.
