Bricks honor family members, anniversaries and other special events
With the completion of the City Center Commons, now is a good time to purchase a Brick Paver as a part of a project sponsored by the Sterling Heights Area Community Foundation.
For a tax-deductible donation of $100, residents can have the message of their choice etched into a Brick Paver that will be installed in and around City Center Commons, the City's award winning municipal complex on the corner of Dodge Park and Utica Road.
Anniversary dates and tributes to family members are among the messages residents can have etched into Brick Pavers. Messages are limited to 3 lines and 12 characters per line.
Approximately 200 Brick Pavers have already been installed on City Center Commons at locations such as the clock tower along Utica Road, according to Dr. Martin Brown, president of the Sterling Heights Area Community Foundation.
"Residents who purchase Brick Pavers are guaranteed a place in City history," said Dr. Brown. "Funding raised, meanwhile, will go toward Community Foundation projects that enhance the quality of life for Sterling Heights Area residents."
All participants will be notified when their bricks will be placed in the paver walkway.
To order a brick paver, mail a check or money order to the Sterling Heights Community Foundation Paver Program, City of Sterling Heights, Community Relations Department, 40555 Utica Road, P.O. Box 8009, Sterling Heights, MI 48311-8009. Please indicate the wording to be etched on your brick.
