  • A little bit of beauty is being added in the village of Utica thanks to the efforts of donations from numerous businesses and residents. A one-half acre parcel of land was recently donated to the village by The Energy Cooperative, and volunteers came out Monday to help mulch plus plant flowers and trees to create a sitting park on North Street, just off North Main Street. A stone walkway will lead to a centralized flower bed with benches and trees surrounding the flower bed. Picnic tables and other features are planned to be added in the future. The Village of Utica is to maintain the park. Pictured are employees of Park National Bank spreading the mulch around the flower beds while other volunteers are taking mulch from a village truck.  style=
