Creating Alley Day
If our town and business owners could ralley together and try just one alley, (let the homeowners and business owners petition which one with Main Street Assoc.... i.e. "Why my Alley"), it could set the trend for the others and this could get accomplished over a period of time, one alley a year or every other year if that's too much on everyone to organize.   More…


Hardest part is the maintenance
 
Being one who has tried to maintain her "part" of the alley (Victory Lane at J), I have to say that the hardest part is the maintenance... and the watering of plants. Remember that BFI uses the alley's - perhaps they could somehow contribute to their maintenance. Their truck drove over the ages-old rosemary bush that sat at this corner, and I probably have made it worse by trying to take out all the dead wood (although it was kind of pretty when the nasturtiams were growing on what is left...). Years ago, Matt Edwards laid a soaker hose back there, and that has helped in the watering area, as long as I can remember to hook a hose up to it at least biweekly. But, since I did this myself, I take ownership for it, and I get pleasure from seeing it at least somewhat planted. While I applaud the effort suggested, there will have to be some ownership for maintenance.
