Visitors to Downtown Scranton can expect to see more green throughout the Business District thanks to the efforts of Scranton Tomorrow volunteers and a host of community partners.

A planting in front of City Hall at 340 N. Washington Avenue marked the first in a series of beautification efforts now underway. Project partners include the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Lackawanna County Department of Economic and Community Development (LCDECD), the City of Scranton, and Penn State Master Gardeners in Lackawanna County.

By the end of the year, 64 new planters will be installed throughout the downtown. For updates on this project and more, visit and follow Scranton Tomorrow on Facebook.
