There’s nothing in it right now, but one of the first signs of completion of the city’s long-awaited improvements to Seawall Boulevard has risen above the street.

A large planter on the south side of the street sits empty now, but come spring it and others like it will be filled with palm trees, a city official said Monday.

“We’re scheduled to be all ready by spring,” City Manager Brian Maxwell said.

Readers will also note that this project delay did not occur until after the Nov. 8 election of Pres.-elect Donald Trump.......[beam][beam][beam]
