Community volunteers gathered at the Westcott Community Center this weekend to continue a special project that's grown to other neighborhoods.
The Westcott Bulb Project provides thousands of the bulbs every year as part of a beautification effort that also builds community between neighbors. This year, the group gave away “thirty-six hundred” bulbs.
Project Founder Peter Wirth says that since its start in 2003, the project has become much more than a way to brighten up gardens at the end of the winter.
Several Westcott Street business owners say construction on the latest Save the Rain project in their neighborhood has brought business to a halt. Work began three weeks ago on the million dollar project, which will narrow the road, add curbs and landscaping, plus replace sidewalks…all while keeping stormwater from overwhelming the sewer system.
