A program to create a cohesive streetscape is underway with new trash containers and newspaper corrals. The pilot program has placed five trash containers and a newspaper corral in the Northside District of Downtown.
New Downtown wayfinding signage will be completed by the City over the next year that will make getting around Downtown easier for vehicular and pedestrian traffic. The first sign was installed on the corner of Market and High streets earlier this year. The signage will highlight key Downtown destinations and parking.
54 hanging flower baskets and 34 planter boxes are coming to Main Street, High Street and Market Street to complement the unique concrete and portable planters throughout Downtown. Flowers will make an appearance in early June.
