Lighting Up Rosemère’s Commercial Streets
ROSEMÈRE, July 18, 2019 – The Town of Rosemère, in collaboration with the Rosemère Business Association (AGAR), is proud to unveil a new and eye-catching style of planter that will help put local storefronts in their best light.
The idea of coming up with a striking decorative element to call attention to the Town’s businesses arose during the annual Rosemère in Bloom competition.
“These illuminated planters are great for showcasing our businesses in an attractive and consistent way,” said Rosemère Mayor Eric Westram. “But they also represent the beginning of a tradition among our merchants to reinforce our reputation as a proud, green and prosperous community, while still maintaining our small-town charm.”
The Town has made funds available for businesses that wish to purchase these special planters and fill them with flowers. The undertaking has been made possible through the support of AGAR and its efforts to promote the Rosemère business community.
“We are delighted by the wonderful partnership that has formed between AGAR, Fleuriste Foliole and the Town,” said AGAR Vice-President Jessy Turcot. “This initiative will enable merchants and office buildings alike to join in this turnkey project to enhance the look of their exterior.”
So far, close to 10 merchants have embraced this new concept and obtained planters to put outside their establishments. It is hoped that more and more members of the business community follow suit in the years to come to light up the town’s main streets for everyone to enjoy.
