WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- The Waynesboro Borough Council has greatly trimmed a plan to plant trees in the public Rotary parking lot.
Landscaping design that went before the council Wednesday was hacked from 35 trees and 142 shrubs to "up to eight trees." The council said it could later add trees in concrete planters.
Councilman Ronnie Martin praised the full redesign plan for the parking lot but said the cost had escalated beyond council's means.
"It's beautiful. I'd love to see it, but we don't have the money," Martin said.
State Sen. Terry Punt, R-Franklin/Adams/York, obtained $93,000 worth of grant money to overlay the lot behind West Main Street, restripe the spaces, improve the lighting and add a 5-foot-wide walkway around the perimeter.
