About the project: 


Downtown Vienna is getting a makeover this fall!  The Town Council-approved plan calls for 81 landscape planters on both sides of Maple Avenue and 46 planters on both sides of Church Street to be transformed into a welcoming, vibrant display of seasonal color from spring to fall. 

 The new look includes a thoughtful selection of shrubs, ornamental grasses, perennials and annuals. On Maple Avenue, all the understory plantings will be completely replaced.  Along Church Street, the majority of the existing understory will stay, complemented by additional plantings in similar colors and textures to create a more consistent appearance. 

As part of this project, some trees that are in poor or declining condition will be removed. This will not only improve the health of the remaining street trees but also increase sunlight exposure and reduce root competition. To maintain the tree population, an equal number of new trees will be planted, enhancing both consistency and biodiversity. 

During the installation of these plants, there will be temporary lane closures on Maple Avenue. The project is scheduled to commence in late September, with substantial completion expected by November 2023. There will be a brief pause during the Town's annual Halloween Parade.  The Vienna Streetscape Project is being led by the Town’s contractor, LSG Landscape Architecture. 

More information on the project is also available in the Maple Ave./Church St. Street Scape Concept that was presented to Town Council on June 20, 2023.
