Planters: Coming soon to a corner near you!

Later this summer, you may notice planters popping up around the neighborhood. These planters are being installed and planted over the next 2 months, compliments of the MVBA Trees & Greening Committee as well as the MVBA Clean & Beautiful Committee. These planters will be maintained year-round with seasonal plantings.

If you are interested in donating to the beautification of our streets, please visit  mvba.org/Donations and specify "Other" and add a comment that the donation is for "Planters."

Thank you in advance for helping us make Mount Vernon  even more beautiful. 

Please note the image above is for aesthetic reference only.
Actual planters will be different from these shown but equally beautiful.
