LEWISBURG, W.Va. (WVDN) – The James F.B. Peyton Foundation and The Lewisburg Foundation (LF) are collaborating to develop new landscaped parking spaces on the west end of downtown Lewisburg.
LF is purchasing the land that previously held True Value and developing the plan with Terradon Corporation and contracting with Boxell Solutions LLC to manage the construction.
Josh Polan, Jerry Janiga and TAG Galyean will donate landscape and architectural design services.
Boxell is also donating to the project and excluding all overhead and profit on their work.
Present plans show 30 public parking spaces, 28 trees and a retaining wall faced with historic bricks salvaged from the Church Street building recently demolished as part of the project.
LF membership funds will not be used for this capital improvement. Membership funds are used to plant, mow, water, prune, fertilize and replace downtown horticulture. Those cost now run about $50,000 per year and include a 10-year tree replacement program.
