86 removable flower baskets installed on lampposts
Review Type
Permit - public space


Recommend AGAINST issuance of permit for installation of flower baskets on 86 lampposts on public space. Flower baskets add to visual clutter, obstruct visibility of business signs on buildings and are not appropriate for the historic district and its streetscape. Note is made that flower baskets have been installed on Wisconsin Avenue and on M Street without a permit, and must be removed no later than 31 March 2005.
