2018 Greenspace Report

This was the second season for the Westville Roundabout neighbors, after they took on restoring the roundabout on Elm St. and West Ave. Their efforts proved valuable and the area where they worked last year didn’t need much else to be done, so after maintenance was done, they started looking at other areas of the neighborhood that could be improved. For the second half of the summer, they focused on curbsides and successfully wrapped up a very productive season!
