Pillette Village is about to undergo a transformation.
The Pillette Village Business Improvement Association and the City of Windsor are getting ready to collaborate on a $320,000 streetscaping project that will be concentrated on the area between Pillette Road and Wyandotte Street East.
The project would include new planters and plants, bike racks, address signs for buildings, banners and banner poles, garbage and recycling stations, and banners and banner poles.
Businesses and property owners have agreed to contribute half of the money for the improvements, according to Bridget Scheuerman, executive director of the Pillette Village BIA.
“Two years ago agreed to have the levy raised and they are most anxious to see this because we’ve been talking about it for four years now and now is the time to go forward with it,” says Scheuerman.
She claims that the community is enthusiastic about the initiative and believes it has been long overdue.
