Working Together to Improve Property Values in Duncanville

The Duncanville community came together today to continue improving local residential properties through the City’s Property Improvement Project program. Lead by the First United Methodist Church (FUMC) in Duncanville, in partnership with City’s Neighborhood Vitality Commission, local volunteers performed pip-days-volunteers-working-on-fence-repair-resizedcosmetic upgrades to bring local residences back to community standards.

“The team effort seen here today reflects the sense of community Duncanville is known for.  We couldn’t have accomplished this project without the help of local volunteers and contributions from local organizations. Their dedication and love for the City is what sets us apart and makes the City of Duncanville the best place to live,” said Mayor David Green.

Today’s project marks the second renovation coordinated by the FUMC in Duncanville and the Duncanville Neighborhood Vitality Commission. “It is absolutely rewarding to be able to assist residents in need through programs like these,” said Brenda O’Brien Duncanville Neighborhood Vitality Commission President. “We are fortunate to have local partners that step up to help beautify the city.” Funding for the project was provided by the FUMC pip-days-volunteers-group-3Mission Group with donations by local businesses including Republic Services, Costco Wholesale, and Chicken Express.

The City plans to continue with the program with future residential projects. Persons interested in volunteering can contact the FUMC in Duncanville at 972-298-6121. Homeowners that wish to be considered for future renovations should contact the City of Duncanville Code Services at 972-780-5040. Residences are selected based on an evaluation conducted by the City that includes resident’s need, income, and scope of work among other criteria.
