Native Plants Taking Root on Division Street


Green street planters capture stormwater runoff that could otherwise cause flooding, sewer overflows and basement sewer backups. These hardy green street plants are healthy and growing stronger and will soak up stormwater and pollution for years to come.

The city maintains green streets, but there are ways you can help. Signing up to be a Green Street Steward is a rewarding way to care for your community and help keep green streets working well in between scheduled maintenance. Go to to find out more and adopt your own Green Street.

The Division Streetscape Project is part of the Tabor to the River program. Tabor to the River is an innovative, cost-saving approach that combines green infrastructure with sewer repairs and improvements to stop basement flooding, manage stormwater naturally onsite, and restore watershed health.
