This year, your Capital Improvements and Beautification Board Committee is working to replace our old cement planters. We are working with the City on a cost sharing proposal for this project. The new planters will be quite large - 48" high on Danforth and 34" high on Broadview; and will make a wonderful visual statement. We are anticipating that these new planters will be in place by mid-July.
In the meantime, we have replanted new cedars to replace ones that didn't quite survive our horrible winter; we have also started to plant ornamental grasses around the cedars. The ornamental grasses have been selected as they are perfect for the sunny side of the street as well as the shady side of the street. They will grow quite tall and turn a golden orange in the fall. Once the new planters are in place these cedars and ornamental grasses will be transplanted.
Hanging baskets will be going up sometime next week on Danforth and on Broadview.
