Downtown Beautification

We love Downtown Syracuse and we know you do, too! If you’d like to put your adoration to good use, help us beautify downtown. Below are ways you can contribute to our downtown beautification efforts.

Hanging Flower Baskets

The gorgeous hanging flower baskets that bloom throughout the summer in Downtown Syracuse are tended by the Downtown Committee and hang in the Cathedral Square, Hanover Square, Salina Street, Clinton Square and Armory Square neighborhoods of downtown. This season, a record 355 baskets will dress downtown's streets in vibrant shades of purple.

Partners in Planting 

Calling all Promising Planters, Character Cultivators, and Master Gardeners… The Downtown Committee is proud to offer a highly visible program that combines employee engagement and downtown beautification to transform the Downtown Syracuse landscape. The Partners in Planting program bolsters downtown employees’ pride in their neighborhood by inviting employees to plant flowers and shrubs in empty street planters.

In June, 2015, the inaugural group of Partners in Planting participants - a group of employees from Young Leaders United, a division of the United Way - rolled up their sleeves to plant four flower beds at the intersection of Washington and Warren Streets. When they finished planting, they traded their gardening tools for garbage bags, to participate in a downtown clean-up. In partnership with Pioneer Companies, Young Leaders United presented an exciting streetscape and encouraged walkability to ensure Downtown Syracuse stands out as a destination. The group returned in June, 2016, along with The Bonadio Group for even more coverage.
