Westmont, Illinois - Date Issued: March 2, 2022
“Our Adopt-A-Planter Program has become so popular that we have added even more planters to the downtown area,” said Public Works Director Mike Ramsey. “We invite all residents and businesses to help us beautify downtown Westmont.”
Residents, businesses, and organizations can sign up for the program, and once their plans are approved, they will be assigned a planter or multiple planters if they wish. Then participants will adopt their planter and be responsible for purchasing the plants and flowers, planting them, and providing general maintenance and care, such as weeding, throughout the summer and fall. Westmont Public Works will be responsible for watering the planters. The Village will place an adoption sign in each planter identifying the people and businesses who are sponsoring the planter.
“This is a fun program that encourages community involvement,” said Village of Westmont Horticulturist Chadd Devries, who helps coordinate the program. “We greatly appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm and support for the project.”
Sign up for the program has begun. The Adopt-A-Planter Program will officially begin on Monday, May 16 and continue through the fall. As there is a limited number of planters in town, participation will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Please fill out the form below to apply.
