Town council has directed staff to apply for a grant to build a xeriscape demonstration garden adjacent to the Station Street plaza project.

A $200 million Natural Infrastructure Fund supports projects that use natural or hybrid approaches to protect the environment. Projects eligible for funding include planting or restoring green space.

Randy Houle, the Town’s director of development services, said staff worked with a landscape architect to design a garden that features xeriscape plantings, interpretive signage, wooden benches, seating stumps, shade structures and trellis poles
