John Glenn ribbon cutting ceremony

A ceremony to dedicate the completion of improvements to John Glenn Road was held on Saturday, September 29. The festivities took place at the intersection of John Glenn Road and Outer Highway 18 prior to the 10 a.m. kick-off of the Fourth Annual Happy Trails Parade and Street Fair.
 
The John Glenn Road improvements were completed through a public private partnership between the Town of Apple Valley and the Village Property and Business Improvement District (PBID). The nearly $500,000 project included rebuilding the street from Powhatan Road to Outer Highway 18, and the installation of curb, gutter and sidewalk along the east side of the road. The completed project gives commuters, residents, and local business owners improved access to Apple Valley's historic downtown district.
