Adopt A Planter Program

planterThe Community Relations Commission invites all Village residents and businesses to participate in the Village’s 2019 Adopt A Planter Program.  Individuals, families, organizations, businesses and other groups may sign up to “adopt” one of the large Village planters located at the train station and, Civic Center, and along Dempster Street from Central to Lehigh Avenue, and along Waukegan Road. Businesses will be given priority to adopt the planter closest to their store or office.

The Village will provide each participant with a starter kit of approved plants, name card and a list of approved items which may be added to customize your planter. Planting day is scheduled for June 1, 2019. Participants will then care for the planter until October by adding plants and creative touches and by removing weeds and debris. The Village will water the planters approximately once each week.

Participants will receive a name card which will be displayed on the planter this year along with recognition on the Village’s website and Facebook Page. Adopting a planter is an excellent way to show your pride in our community and will help keep the Village beautiful.  Interested persons should sign up before May 24, 2019.  Registration forms are available on the Village’s website and at Village Hall.

The Community Relations Commission is comprised of Village residents who volunteer their time to foster and improve relations among individuals of all races, religions, national origins and economic backgrounds. 

Your dedication will be recognized by the Village Board and appreciated by the community.
