Beautification

What are the planters raising money for?

The planters are part of an effort to encourage businesses to enhance their facilities and storefronts with a core initiative to fundraise for larger beautification projects to improve the esthetics of our corridors and community (i.e. signage, streetscapes, plantings).

 What have they accomplished to date?

Waterford does not have a specific downtown area. The corridors blend with neighboring communities.  Most cities and townships have identifiable markers that let visitors know they have entered their community. Waterford had very antiquated signage that was in desperate need of replacement. The committee, through the support of the planter program and EDC, was able to place secondary signage throughout Waterford as well as two major gateway signs, with landscaping, that welcome visitors to our township.

 What is the next project? The current project is to identify significant areas along the corridors that are worthy of streetscapes i.e. pavers, plantings, lighting, decorative artifacts, etc. One area at a time, we can make a significant difference to attract people and businesses to our community.  The funding process is slow but we will get there!

 Delivery:
Our committee is small and the delivery and pick-up of the planters has been a tremendous amount of work for just a few.  We have set aside a pick-up day in the chamber office parking lot. If you would like your planter delivered, we do have a delivery option for an additional $20.  These planters can also be used for your homes and subdivision entrances as well.  Please help support our efforts.  We appreciate your continued support!
