Planters require watering but how do you water many planters and hanging baskets over numerous blocks?
You don’t drag a garden hose around to do it, you drag a tank of water instead. This is done as part of the Downtown St. Louis Community Improvement District (CID):
The CID is a 165-square block area located in the center of Downtown, St. Louis. The District was established in January 2000 by property owners who were committed to providing a cleaner, safer, and more attractive environment that would protect existing assets, attract new investment, and create a more vibrant business, residential, entertainment and hospitality community in the core of Downtown St. Louis.
The CID, managed by The Partnership for Downtown St. Louis, provides enhanced services and programs above and beyond those provided by the city of St. Louis. These programs and services include maintenance, security, economic and housing development, marketing, special events, streetscape improvements and landscaping services, among others. (Downtown CID)
This is money well spent in my view.
