Island Maintenance Sponsorship 

There are twenty traffic islands throughout the city that can be sponsored. These islands are all situated on main, highly traveled roads ideal for advertising your business, non-profit or organization. 

This program requires the sponsor to plant and maintain the plants/flowers. The cost associated with this program is the cost of the plants/flowers and your time spent maintaining the island(s). 

Sponsorship begins in April each year and ends once snow falls - typically November. Each year sponsors sign an agreement to maintain the island for this time period. 

If you have any questions or would like to sponsor an island, please contact Jessica DeRoy, Economic Development Coordinator, at
