June 30, 2010 Staff Report

Sunnyside Shines, the local business improvement district(BID), erected 50-60 hanging flower baskets throughout the business district on Monday.

The effort is part of the group’s aim of beautifying the neighborhood. This is the first year the BID has mounted hanging baskets, which it plans to do every summer.

The flowers, purple geraniums, are expected to become more visible in the next two weeks as they grow in.

How long are these flowers to be displayed? Just curious. The other day traffic on a side street was blocked while a guy sprayed water on the flowers from a hose aboard a truck (bearing the name ‘5th Ave Bid’ and some other different names of organizations/companies). It all seemed so ridiculous.
