Funds for flowers

In May 2010, the Cedar Mill Business Association sponsored the first installation of flower baskets along Cornell Road in downtown Cedar Mill. The popular program continued last year, and this spring we will see these beautiful displays again.

The financial burden, however, has fallen to only a few local businesses that donated money, along with some funds from CMBA dues. This year, the group will reach out to all Cedar Mill businesses and commercial property owners, with a special focus on those with storefronts along Cornell, Saltzman and Murray. Anyone who enjoys the flowers, however, will be welcome to donate to the fund.

Cedar Mill NewsCedar Mill is a wonderful community, but it’s not a city. The county doesn’t provide urban amenities like this. So it’s up to us to come up with the ideas, the energy to carry them out, and the funds to make it possible. Future plans include seasonally replacing the flowers with winter greenery, but this will depend on broader financial support.

We have set up a state non-profit organization, The Cedar Mill Community Fund, to manage the funds. Donations can be dropped off at the Sunset Credit Union on Murray, across from McDonalds.

Letters will go out later this month inviting business and property owners to participate. Thanks for your support!
