Norton Traffic Median to Be Landscaped

The Norton traffic median before the proposed restoration.

The Windsor Square Homeowners Association is managing the restoration of a long neglected traffic median at Norton and 6th Streets. The plan, designed by Cheryl Lerner, nearby resident and garden designer, calls for the installation of a large oak tree with appropriate under plantings. Damon Hein, also a neighbor, has provided engineering expertise.

Scott Goldstein, chairman of the Windsor Square “Canopy” helped spearhead the project to which approximately $23,000 has been donated by the  Windsor Square-Hancock Park Historical Society.  Scott and his committee have planted hundreds of trees in Windsor Square over the years in an effort to revitalize the urban tree canopy. Thousands of cars pass this median daily and it’s enhanced appearance will make that drive much more pleasant, and a welcome eastern entrance to the Windsor Square neighborhood.

Correction: Larry Guzin, WSA president commented below that funds for the project are coming from the Windsor Square – Hancock Park Historical Society, from the proceeds of their annual garden tour. Windsor Square Association is managing the project.
