MONROE - A draft by Main Street Monroe suggesting trees and plants be placed around the perimeter of the flat parking lot set to replace the recently demolished municipal ramp was approved by the Business Improvement District board on Thursday. Donna Glynn shared the design plans on behalf of the Main Street Monroe Design Committee. Created by Joe Lawniczak, a downtown design specialist with the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation in Madison, the enhancements running along the outside of the lot include a number of trees and plants as well as a brick sign indicating city parking space for the planned 72-stall lot set to be paved in spring once the frost recedes from the ground.
