There are few ways that display our community’s pride in itself more than the many flower baskets that adorn our city streets. And that’s because of the way those baskets are planted every year.
A project directed by the Greater Kokomo Downtown Association, Keep Kokomo Beautiful brings together hundreds of volunteers. In 2016, more than 400 volunteers planted 1,122 hanging flower baskets. Volunteers also planted 104 garden areas and cement planters, and 32 sidewalk gardens in downtown Kokomo.
The annual project also sees the cleaning of local waterways. In 2016, volunteers collected 1.5 tons of garbage.
This strong show of community support every year to clean and beautify our community shows that our residents care about where they live.
