[ARCHIVED] New Donation Opportunities Help Beautify Woodbridge

Memorial_Bench

The Town of Woodbridge has two new donation opportunities — benches and trees —for people looking to provide a lasting gift to the Town.

“One of my goals is to make the Town Center Campus a more attractive public gathering space,” says First Selectman Beth Heller. “These two donation programs will help us maintain and upgrade the look and feel of our Town Center, which is an important reflection on our town.”

Benches available for donation cost $2,800 for a 6-foot bench and $3,100 for an 8-foot bench. The price includes the cost of delivery, installation by the Town and a plaque on which the donor may have a message inscribed.  The Town has identified several locations where benches are needed.

Memorial Bench Program

The online form for the Memorial Bench program is available on the Public Works Department page of the Town website. 

Memorial Tree Program

The online form for the Memorial Tree program is available on the Public Works Department page of the Town website.

Until local nurseries receive their tree stock for the season it is difficult to pinpoint a price, but the Town estimates that a donation of $600 or $700 will cover the cost of a tree, delivery fee, installation and a plaque to thank donors.  More accurate pricing will be available in the spring. The plan is to line Fitzgerald Fitness Tract along Center Road with Seven Sons, Dogwoods and Crabapples. Currently the Town Green is in need of three salt-tolerant shade trees. Species under consideration for this location include Dawn Redwood, Sweet Gum, Honey Locust, White Oak or Black Gum.
