Our idea is to encourage beautifying the North Avenue corridor (between Iona College and the Transit Center) by adding planters outside the local businesses. The corridor is well trafficked and is on the upswing with many new businesses coming in but physically remains a bit drab on the street. We noticed our neighboring business had placed a few planters outside and saw how it simply and immediately made that section of street look much more appealing. Our business, Ground Floor Coworking, at 547 North Ave (near City Hall) is seeking a $250 grant to purchase 2 environmentally friendly self-watering planters to put outside. As we have very good relationships with neighboring businesses all along the corridor we would visit each to bring attention to the planters and encourage them to do the same.
