Water Street Beautification Project

These improvements will be right up your alley

If you walked down the alleyway between Beyond and Finnigan’s Cove recently, hopefully you enjoyed the surprise you encountered! Clean sidewalks covered in a stenciled design, new wooden trash cans, new wooden planters with maple tree saplings, decorative lights on the branches, and a new trash system for Finnigan’s. This was one of the most exciting projects HDR’s staff and volunteers were able to work on and we wanted to tell you about some of the behind-the-scenes work that made this awesome beautification project happen.
