ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An update now to a story we told you about last month. An East Albany neighborhood where vandals destroyed a beautification project will get a grant to replace their flower garden.

 In May someone stole 20 knockout rose bushes from three different flower beds in the Colonial Village subdivision.

Keep Albany Dougherty Beautiful learned today they'll get a $2,400 grant to help the neighborhood repair the damage. 

"He is very excited that they can get those replanted. That neighborhood has worked very hard to make their neighborhood look good and be crime free and liter free," said Judy Bowles of Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful. 

The money comes from ten HUD blight grants that Keep Albany Dougherty Beautiful can give to different organizations. So far, only four groups have applied for the money.
