Town of Westbrook
Sustainable Practices Education and Demonstration in a Parking Lot Project
New interactive signage placards and plant labels will educate the public on demonstrated sustainable design and care practices in a parking lot. The half-acre, 20 space parking lot is surrounded by an urban meadow with an adjacent stream at the corner of the Boston Post Road and Route 153 in Westbrook. The placards and plant labels will highlight native plants that require minimal care, protective trees, pervious asphalt, low energy lights, and solar powered trash and recycling receptacles that call for pick-up when full, reducing unnecessary trash pick-ups. Grant amount: $3,465.
