Hanging Basket Program Preferences
web - hanging basket_thumb.JPG
- Sponsorship minimum is two baskets
- Hanging baskets have a bigger impact if many are hung in one area.  Sponsors should work with others to create an area of concentration of baskets
- Maintenance of hanging baskets is easier if many baskets are hung in one area.  If less than eight baskets are hung in a location isolated from other hanging baskets, maintenance costs might increase
- Hanging baskets can only be hung in the street right-of-way or on city property
