Westfield is gearing up for the annual America in Bloom competition (locally known as "Westfield in Bloom".
Throughout the coming months, residents, businesses, and organizations should submit their photos and stories of their own beautification efforts.
Downtown Westfield Corporation and Williams Nursery, co-leaders of the effort have already begun planting projects. New planters around downtown storefronts will soon emerge from the greenhouse. Baskets along Central Avenue and around selected light poles will also be planted for the floral display category.
