Ten planters have been recently installed from Dodge Avenue along Dempster Street to Darrow  Avenue, compliments of a collaborative effort by the West Village Business Association (WVBA)  and the City’s Greater Merchants Grant program. Installed and planted by local landscaper Nature's Perspective, all pots will have seasonal rotations of plants and be maintained by local merchants on those streets.

A rising  Buddha head will soon join the planters at Dodge/Dempster as one of five permanent sculptures donated to the City by artist Indira Freitas Johnson.

This is a project of the WVBA to enhance the aesthetics of the Dodge-Dempster corridor and to increase awareness of this eclectic business district of artists, health professionals, writers, yoga studios, bike shops, pet day care, photographers and more from Lake Street to Lee Street and from Dodge Avenue to Wesley Avenue.
