Sprucing up downtown Logan with an array of colorful flowers
Logan in Bloom decided to re-enter the America in Bloom competition this year in honor of the Bicentennial, and will be joining Brewton, Alabama; Belpre, Ohio; and Kimberly, Wisconsin in the 5,000 to 10,000 population category.
The city will be evaluated in several categories, including floral displays, landscaped areas, urban forestry, environmental effort, heritage preservation and overall impressions.
One judge who visited Logan was Evelyn Alemanni, who is a self-employed writer and award-winning gardener from Elfin Forest, California. She has judged for AIB since 2003, visiting more than 150 towns in 10 countries.
The other was John “Jay” Harper, who is a third-generation horticulturist who operates Harper’s Landscape and Gardening Center with his two brothers in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The City of Logan received several awards during its years of competition (2004 to 2007), including an outstanding achievement award, community champion, population category winner, YouTube video award, and other special awards.
In 2005 and 2006, Logan was awarded the outstanding achievement award for community involvement.
“It’s probably the most difficult award to receive because it’s not just for our population category, that’s for all cities. There are about 45 up to 200 cities that enter every year. We were up against cities like New York City, New York, Riverside, California and places like that. We were up against some big cities,” added Webb.
“People in our community are amazing at volunteering and there are a lot of things that wouldn’t take place in our community if you didn’t have volunteers,” he continued.
Businesses downtown also donated money to buy strings of lights to dangle across Main Street. They wanted to make driving through the area a nice experience but ran into a big problem.
“The bases of the light poles were installed incorrectly when they were put in so they’ve rusted. We usually hang planters on them but we were unable to this year. It’s also corroded in there and impacted the electricity that is running to those strings of lights,” he stated.
“Hopefully they will get those repaired at some point in time because we have a wonderful Christmas display of lights that we hang on the poles and I don’t think we’ll be able to use them this year. To repair the poles could cost the City of Logan $120,000. It’s a big bill and it’s probably going to take a while to repair,” added Webb.
Webb said he enjoys helping with the revitalization of downtown Logan but there is a lot of work to do.
“I love it. It’s about quality of life issues. It’s about making a city a community. It’s about pulling people together. It’s been shown that when you use flowers and trees it does that, it creates and inviting atmosphere.
“It creates an environment where people can take pride in their community. There is a great deal of pride in Logan, and we need to expand on that,” concluded Webb.
