Promenade Planter Box - This 9 1/2-foot-square box in the 300 block of S. Main is one of 48 to be built as part of a three-block-long promenade on Main in between Huron and William. Each planter box will have a 20 to 30-foot-high moraine locust or linden tree, ground cover and/or shrubbery. Brick walkways will separate planter boxes. Two drinking fountains and several benches are planned for each block of the promenade which is being formed from parking lanes on either side of the street. Each planter box will have an automatic sprinkler system, permitting all plantings to be watered simultaneously. Completion date of the three-block project is Nov. 9.
