CLEARLAKE – A number of community members came out to the old Austin Resort last weekend, rolled up their sleeves and got to work in giving the city-owned building a fresh look.


Jeri Spittler, who organized the June 5 effort, called it a “fantastic success.”


In recent years the building has run into disrepair, but the paint job gave the building a boost just in time for the summer season.


City officials, local businesses and residents pitched in to give the building its tidy new look, Spittler said.


For a full list of sponsors and participants, see Spittler's thank you letter (Spittler: Thanks for making grassroots redevelopment project possible).
