Summary

BLOCKWATCH 303 group started with stewardship of flower beds located at Beecher Park and at the corner of Yale and Chapel Streets. The group replaced the dead red bud tree that was planted last year at Beecher Park. In its place, they planted a flowering dogwood tree with help from the Common Grounds student crew. Apart from stewardship and planting, Bob and Kate Bradley wanted to explore opportunities to restore the art wall at the park. They received past information about the art project but did not follow up later with restoration ideas.
