The presentation will take place at the Joliet Public Library – Black Road Branch, 3395 Black Road (815) 846-6500. The public is invited and encouraged to attend.
America In Bloom is a national community-development program that fosters civic pride and economic development. AIB coaches towns on ways to become more livable and sustainable through a framework of grassroots efforts. The judges will spend a few days in Joliet evaluating 6 categories:
- Overall Impression
- Heritage Preservation
- Environmental Efforts
- Urban Forestry
- Landscaped Areas
- Floral Displays
The AIB judges’ feedback will help Joliet design its AIB campaign and ultimately compete for nationally prestigious AIB awards and grants. For further information you can visit their website at www.americainbloom.org or contact City Arborist Jim Teiber at (815) 724-4046.
