Ashland sprucing up for summer tourist season
Question of the Day
ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) - Ashland is getting ready for the summer tourist season.
The Ashland Daily Tidings reports (http://is.gd/8S6ATC ) the City Council has approved several improvements recommended by a downtown beautification committee.
Visitors will see three new “Welcome to Ashland” signs at a cost of just over $3,000. The city may spend another $3,000 if it decides to light the signs.
Meanwhile, a new street light will illuminate a dark walkway that connects Main Street with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s Thomas Theatre. The city will also replace unsightly asphalt along a sidewalk on Lithia Way between Oak and Pioneer streets with soil and possibly flowers.
In the fall, the city will add a row of trees and tree grates to help Lithia Way more closely resemble the rest of downtown.
