The Idaho Springs city council is trying to decide whether to plant trees along Miner Street or opt for something more permanent.
While tree-lined streets are pretty, they need maintenance, and drivers parking on Miner Street sometimes back their cars into them. However, sculptures are expensive to buy, and cars that accidentally hit them could damage them, costing the city even more.
Council members decided during their April 10 meeting to continue discussing what should be located along the “bump outs” or the areas that extend out from the sidewalks.
