In November of 2013 the Westbrook Environmental Improvement Corporation (WEIC) approved a City beautification effort.
Broadway Gardens of Westbrook visited the four primary sites with staff and agreed to help us design, prepare, plant and maintain vibrant, visible, seasonal plantings in an effort to beautify key intersections and send a strong community message about Westbrook pride.
With WEIC funding and Broadway Gardens supplying design work and flowers at wholesale prices and Cumberland County Jail providing the labor - four community flower gardens were planted at four major intersections.
WEIC is also funding the ongoing watering, feeding and weeding for each location.

WEIC is working with the City Arborist on a comprehensive tree planting program. Our goal is to enhance and restore our Gateway and Main Street canopies that have been impacted by over time by disease, weather and trimming. Restoring trees to the City landscape will provide environmental benefits such as reducing peak stormwater flows, reducing heat island effects, and improving water quality.
