Healthy Street Planters

For new permanent Healthy Street locations, neighbors can replace the standard concrete sign base with planters.

SDOT can install the planters at Healthy Street intersections (see diagram below) based on the request that we receive. Depending on availability, we can also provide starter plants to help those wanting to adopt a planter. Our planter form will have various plant options for you to decide.

Coordinate: If you do not live directly at the corner where a Healthy Street Planter can be placed, you can work with your neighbors to create a partnership for a Healthy Street planter.

Maintain: Healthy Street planters will need to be watered and maintained by neighbors. You can find helpful tips and information for maintaining your planter.
