Silver City MainStreet is coordinating a Downtown Beautification Initiative. A group of youth volunteers coordinated by Gary Stailey will construct planters similar to the example seen in the photo. The planters will be placed in a variety of locations in the downtown commercial district. Locations will be selected that do not obstruct lines of sight at intersections or that disrupt the flow of pedestrian traffic. An additional criteria for planter placement will be that the business owner in closest proximity to the planter will maintain the planting.
