Mayor Art Ward ordered public works officials Friday to come up with a plan to make sure that downtown receives the maintenance it needs.
Ward said that he told Public Works Director Walter Veselka that he wants a solid plan in place before October’s Public Works Board meeting.
One possibility, he said, is to have local nurseries adopt areas in the median to showcase their work and beautify downtown.
The mayor said he wants the plan to include both North Main and Main streets.
The move follows complaints by downtown property owners that the city is not doing enough to take care of the area’s appearance and safety.
