Beardstown Downtown Beautification

Beardstown, Illinois

JBS USA Donation Makes Downtown Beardstown Beautification Possible

Beardstown’s downtown square could use a little facelift to make it more attractive for members of the community, as well as visitors. The square is used for a variety of festivals, parties and parades in town. This investment will strengthen the cultural and community gathering potential by making the square a more comfortable, more attractive and more user-friendly place for residents and visitors by updating benches and lighting, installing new planters, a fountain, a PA system and more.

Partner: City of Beardstown, Beardstown Chamber of Commerce, Beardstown Main Street

Completion Date: Completed

As Mayor of the city of Beardstown, I am so excited about the investment JBS has extended to our community's future during this pandemic. The City Council and myself look forward to working together with JBS.
