About Downtown Beautification
A clean, attractive downtown pleases visitors and residents, spurs economic development, improves the quality of life and enhances customer perceptions of safety. Downtown is a gateway for our visitors and its beauty and cleanliness are dependent on your cooperation.
Keeping Downtown vibrant includes a number of projects from planting trees and gardens to forming cleaning committees, recruiting volunteers and raising funds. IDI also works with partners to install the holiday lights that decorate the Soldiers and Sailors Monument known as: Circle of Lights presented by the Contractors of Quality Connection and Electrical Workers of IBEW #481.
