E. Main Street is about to become even more charming with this week’s planting of red maple trees. Public Works crews are scheduled to plant the trees in four spots from Armadillo Grill to the Speakeasy in Downtown Carrboro.
The tree plantings are among a series of recent recommendations from the Town of Carrboro’s Appearance Commission, which is working with the Town’s Public Works Department, the Economic Sustainability Commission, the Tourism Development Commission, the Arts Council and local businesses to enhance the attractiveness of downtown. This includes landscaping, tree canopy, public art, wayfinding, store front refurbishment, trash receptacles and sidewalks.
The Appearance Commission initiates, promotes, and assists in the implementation of programs for general community beautification. Learn more about the responsibilities of this Town advisory board at https://townofcarrboro.org/802/Appearance-Commission
