Hanging Flower Baskets

The gorgeous hanging flower baskets that bloom throughout the summer in Downtown Syracuse are tended by the Downtown Committee and hang in the Cathedral Square, Hanover Square, Salina Street, Clinton Square and Armory Square neighborhoods of downtown. This season, 330 baskets will dress downtown's streets in vibrant shades of purple.

Cigarette Litter Prevention Program

Cigarette Urn 3

In March 2018, the Downtown Committee received a $5,000 Cigarette Litter Prevention Program grant from Keep America Beautiful. The grant allowed the Downtown Committee to implement a new litter prevention campaign, including the purchase of 20 new powder-coated steel cigarette butt receptacles, which are placed in various locations throughout Downtown Syracuse.
