Beautification

Beautification is working alongside our neighbors from the East Cambridge Business Association (ECBA) to spruce up our Square. The group has confirmed that summer flower baskets will go all the way down Cambridge Street and into Inman Square, along with American flags. The committee is still working out whether the flags of other nations would be a good addition. All parties agreed, however, that there would be work to fill in empty tree wells in the Square and that ECBA would be supporting an application for a city grant to create a mural on one of our Inman Square buildings. The Committee also hopes to wrap our trees in white lights during the holidays and to get the side of the Urgent Care lot cleaned up. Finally, the Beautification Committee discussed increasing the number of sidewalk planters already installed in front of businesses by resident volunteers, adding storefront window boxes, and creating some sort of pedestrian walkway in the area between Beauty pizza and East Cambridge Savings Bank.
