Update from Save It Lancaster! Beginning last fall, City contractors started to install vegetated curb extensions / rain gardens, and this spring they were planted! West James Street will soon be paved and Mulberry Street will begin its conversion to a complete green street soon after. The first of its kind in Lancaster City, Mulberry Street will go back to a two way street (instead of one) and will boast bike lanes, permeable paving, vegetated curb extensions / rain gardens, newly planted trees and much more. Here is a picture of what it will look like.
