Over 2100 shrubs, trees, and perennials were planted, 66 LED color changing lights were added to the former railroad bridge, and a 15 foot art pole in the scheme of “In The Shadow of the Rails” was installed. The Committee meets monthly to discuss future plans for improvement to ensure our community remains a vibrant place.
