The Diamond City Partnership (DCP), Wilkes-Barre’s downtown management organization, recently unveiled twelve new sidewalk planters on the third block of South Main Street and the first block of East South Street in Downtown Wilkes-Barre. The project was funded by one of twenty-six grants made by TLF’s Grants Committee and awarded during TLF’s 25th Anniversary Celebration Dinner earlier this year.
The large “self-watering” planters, planted by Dundee Gardens, expand the downtown beautification efforts started by DCP several years ago. The enhanced “curb appeal” complements Downtown Wilkes-Barre’s emergence as a walkable, college-anchored, live-work neighborhood and a regional destination for dining, arts, and entertainment.
“This effort has a straightforward goal: to improve Downtown Wilkes-Barre’s pedestrian experience,” said DCP Executive Director Larry Newman. “As we continue to fill storefronts, add restaurants, and develop new housing, we want a walk along South Main Street to be as attractive as possible.”
“Now, thanks to The Luzerne Foundation’s generosity, we’ve been able to extend our street-level beautification efforts into two additional downtown blocks. We are grateful for TLF’s ongoing support of our work to revitalize Downtown Wilkes-Barre – the heart of Luzerne County.”
“We are very excited to be a part of this project which has a significant immediate impact and a long-term, lasting benefit,” noted Charles Barber, President/CEO of The Luzerne Foundation. “The new planters are just one of many community beautification projects The Foundation has funded over the years throughout Luzerne County.”
