Beginning June 22, the City of Mt. Pleasant will remove the 42 round cement planters along the streets of downtown. Planters on Main Street will be removed first, followed by those on Broadway Street. Periodic parking space and street closures will occur throughout the project to accommodate the necessary equipment.

After the planters are removed, spaces will be filled with turf, concrete or brick pavers, depending on the location.

The project will conclude July 13.
