Debbie Miller, Richard Peak, artist Jon Lockard, and Dani Romirez are working on the mural on the wall of the building next to the mini park at Huron and Main streets. The mural, which eventually will depict two city scapes – a polluted city and a clean city – is expected to be completed by the end of this week depending on the weather. The creativity is being donated by Lockard and his art class at Washtenaw Community College. Materials for the mural are being donated by WCC. Boy Scouts have planted over 700 tullip and daffodil bulbs in the park.
