Congratulations to the Emery Village BIA along with the more than 2200 Businesses that support the BIA and assist with the development and beautification of the Emery Village area.
Did you know that there are approximately 260 hanging flower baskets installed and managed on a weekly basis? There are 60 large flower boxes, many that adorn the gateways and entrances to Emery, and 50 flag poles that carry the Emery name as well as Canadian flags strategically placed. Also, there are seven garden walls and flower beds and 29 tree and floral beds, three gateway signs that include custom sidewalks and colourful roadway pattern brick and eight roadway medians planted with flowers.
The plants were just recently installed. This year there is a new selection of plant types and new larger hanging planters that retain their moisture much more efficiently. Keep an eye out and enjoy the beauty as they continue to grow and flourish.
Once again, thank you to all the generous members of the Emery Village BIA that help make this all possible.
