The College District installed 12 new bike racks in three locations that support 24 bikes.
In June we applied for Alliant Energy’s Branching Out tree planting grant program to plant trees in the district. We received a grant for $5,000 which allowed us to plant half of the proposed trees this year as we look into planting the rest next year. The trees were provided by Trees Forever and the city donated the mulch and the labor. We're looking forward to the many benefits the trees will provide our district!
The College District has installed 11 new trash receptacles at various locations in the 1200, 1300, 1400 and 1500 blocks of First Avenue East.
