“There are people in the neighborhood who have approached me who have done beautification and landscaped that area in the past, they’ve told me they want to do more,” Kezer said.

That being said, any beautification efforts would likely have to wait at least for a little while, because the entire area will soon become a construction site as the bridge carrying I-95 over Main Street is replaced, Kezer said.

“That will turn into a construction site right there, so I told folks not to rush into any new beautification projects for the visitors center because its going to be a construction site for a while,” Kezer said. “Lets get through that and then we can figure out what exactly we can do in that area.”
