Bowmanville is turning green — thanks to you!

Tom Kennedy with the new display panel installed in Bowmanville’s new greenspace. Tom contributed production of the large sign to the cause. Special thanks to Joe Charles for his masterful framing and installation of the sign.

Thanks to longtime Bowmanville resident Tom Kennedy, a new 6-foot tall sign greeted visitors to the new greenspace on the day of the Ice Cream Social in August. Featuring a sketch created by GreenSpace Committee member Kris Neurauter, the sign illustrates the landscaping plan that emerged after a series of community brainstorming sessions in 2010. This plan is now being implemented by a newly formed Greenspace Design Group that has been meeting over the summer to identify tree and plant species for the new greenspace, map out materials needed for the Stump Stomp and Rock Walk areas, determine locations for the new rain garden, arbor and benches as well as other hardscape features. Led by Neurauter, members of the design group include Ellen Jurczak, Diana Liefer, Mary Jude Ramirez, Betty Redmond, Katy Rico, Ellen Schmidt, Dena Van der Wal, and Poonam Thaker.
