GROW DOWNTOWN IS A BEAUTIFICATION INITIATIVE FOCUSED ON COMMUNITY PRIDE, BUSINESS REVITALIZATION AND SUSTAINABLE URBAN DEVELOPMENT. SPRING FLOWERS REPRESENT ACCELERATED GROWTH AND EXCITEMENT IN DTSB!
WHAT IS GROW DOWNTOWN?
Grow Downtown is presented by DTSB, allowing individuals to get involved and take pride in their community. The program focuses on:
Encourage Community Pride
Create Positive Perceptions
Increase Property Value
Renew Business Districts
Draw in Visitors
Attract New Businesses
Enhance Green Space
Improve Quality of Life
Improved property value is directly linked to well-maintained, dense landscaping and green spaces. Crime rates are lower in areas, which appear clean and cared for. Thus, residents and businesses are more attracted to urban areas featuring green spaces. Overall, a positive perception of place invites pedestrian participation, encourages community cohesion, and boosts business.
Individuals can purchase hanging flower baskets or plantings adding beauty to the streets of downtown South Bend. Each flower arrangement adds color, vitality, and beauty to the downtown area. The arrangements represent, memorialize, or honor community members while helping downtown grow.
