KELSEYVILLE, Calif. — The Kelseyville Pear Festival Committee, led by Cindy Bain, has generously donated over $57,000 to the Kelseyville Business Association Beautification Committee over the past three years.

The funds were a result of the Farm to Fork Dinner auction. They also donated an additional $5,000 towards the restoration of the Kelseyville Senior Center, now the Kelseyville Event Center.

“We are so grateful!” the association said in a statement on the donations.

The Beautification Committee Vision is to enhance the aesthetics and assets of downtown Kelseyville by beautification of public and private spaces.

The committee’s goal is to ensure that Kelseyville remains a safe, clean and attractive place to live and visit.

Its mission is to initiate, promote and facilitate the implementation of projects/programs designed to enhance and restore the beauty and historic character of downtown Kelseyville.

The committee’s scope is beautification efforts, pedestrian amenities and community landscaping, and its purpose is to identify, prioritize, and scope projects; assign project leads; identify available resources and/or need for contractors; and report regularly to KBA board and membership.

The monies were used for the following accomplishments:

• Restoration of the Kelseyville Event Center (senior center).
• New “Welcome to Kelseyville” lamppost banners.
• The painting of all lampposts and garbage receptacles on Main Street.
• Three additional trash receptacles on Main Street.
• Eight benches on Main Street.
• Eight planter troughs on Main Street adorned with plants.
• Event sign at old Kelseyville Lumber Yard.
• Rain bonnets for the two trash receptacles.
• New bulletin board near the Food Center.
• Two “Welcome to Kelseyville” billboards on Highway 29.

These improvements are in the works and are proposed to be accomplished spring of 2024:

• Two “SLOW” flashing solar signs, one for each end of downtown Main Street.
• Replace the reflective tape on eight crosswalks on Main Street.
• Utility vehicle, two-seater with cargo bed and trailer to be used for downtown events.

The beautification committee offered its sincere thanks to the Pear Festival Committee for its generous donations and commitment to Kelseyville.
