Have you noticed new splashes of color when passing New London City Hall? The magnificent architecture of this fine building was recently enhanced by the New London Beautification Committee. The addition of new planters is part of an ongoing collaboration to improve the appearance of this noble structure. The two planters at the front doors were donated to the City by the New London Garden Club. The other nine planters as well as all the plants and soil were purchased by Beautification. The installation of these concrete planters would not have been possible without the assistance of the Public Works Department. Special thanks go to Dave DeNoia from Parks for his cooperation and advice. Thanks also go to Bob Myers, Assistant to the Director of Public Works, Corey Elmore and Sean Porter from Parks, and Jim Petty, George Frankewicz, Matt Alloway, Don York, and Bill Barlow from the Buildings for their assistance. Beautification also thanks Brian Desautell from Center City District for doing such a fine job keeping all the downtown plants watered during the summer. It’s collaborations such as this that will continue to improve the appearance of downtown New London.Tita WilliamsNew LondonChair, New London Beautification Committee
