Downtown Planter Project Expanded to River Basin

Commissioners have a approved the addition of decorative planters around the City’s River Basin on Hendry Street and Edwards Drive.

Local resident Debra Gillen has generously provided funding for this extension to the planter box project she funded along First Street. 

The First Street planters have brought an added dimension to the historic brick-lined downtown. When the project was first introduced, several meetings were held, including meetings with business owners on First street who caught the vision of creating a unified and cohesive look along the street. Interior PlantScapes installed and regularly maintain the First Street planters, which are holding up well in their five months of enhancement of the downtown streets.
