2017 AARP Community Challenge Grantee
Grant monies enabled the purchase and placement of benches with attached planters to provide pedestrians with places to sit.
To encourage pedestrian traffic, the very small city (population 1,159, average age 56), installed seating with attached planters. A construction crew from a nearby correctional facility built four bench-planter combos. High school students made plaques to recognize the inmates for their work and AARP for helping to fund the building supplies.
