Summary

Cedar Hill is a community nestled by the slopes of East Rock Park. The Cedar Hill Greenspace group, led by three tremendous women, has helped transform and beautify streets, corners, medians, and open space throughout the neighborhood. This year the group tackled the $219 sign on Warren Place by removing weeds and planting bright, colorful perennials and shrubs in front of a fence where dumping is a serious issue. In addition, group efforts focused on the stewardship of their numerous planting sites.
