Grant to fund planting of trees in Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on January 13, 2010

The road leading you to Ottawa should be getting green thanks to a state grant for more trees.

Ottawa has received a 337 thousand dollar Illinois Green Streets Program grant.  It’ll pay to plant trees along state and federal routes in and out of town, including Routes 23, 71 and 6.

City officials announced yesterday they had received the competitive grant.  They’ll be working with IDOT to decide where the tress will be planted.
