Adopt and Beautify in KOP
Planting projects in King of Prussia improve aesthetics, safety and environmental management

Since 2011, King of Prussia District has participated in PennDOT's Adopt and Beautify Program.  An extension of the State's Wildflower Planting Program that started in 1990, this program provides an opportunity for organizations to partner with PennDOT to improve the landscapes adjacent to major thoroughfares. As identified in PennDOT's 2003 Roadside Planting Guidebook, this program addresses several essential highway components, including aesthetics, safety, roadway enhancement and environmental management.

King of Prussia District has installed and maintained 16 different planting projects along PennDOT roads in KOP. Not only do these flowering beds meet the Guidebook's call for color, texture and scale, but the installations also delineate the roadway to keep drivers focused and improve decision making along the route.  In addition to driver safety, the program encourages roadway and environmental enhancements that improve water drainage, revegetate construction areas, stabilize slopes and reduce mowing.

This spring, King of Prussia District will install and update 2 new project areas under King of Prussia District's Adopt and Beautify permit, which includes 3 island medians along PennDOT roads at Mall Blvd. and Rt. 202. These areas will achieve the objectives outlined in PennDOT's Guidebook with sustainable plantings that will provide drivers with visual cues to help them navigate the high-volume intersections.  The planting bed design takes into account traffic speeds and roadway maintenance that will utilize salt-tolerant perennial flowers and shrubs that are visible to flowing traffic without hindering sightlines.  These new planted areas will improve our streets as public spaces with safety and aesthetics by design.

FREE Upcoming Webinar-Register Today!
Jerry Sweeney presents KOP Rail: Transforming Commercial Real Estate in Our Region 

While many industries stand to benefit from King of Prussia Rail, the potential effect on Commercial Real Estate in our region is particularly impactful. Studies show that the national average rent in transit-accessible buildings is significantly higher than the average market rent. Properties in close proximity to safe and reliable public transportation are more attractive to tenants, who then are then better positioned to recruit and retain employees. 

In this webinar, Jerry Sweeney, President and Chief Executive Officer and Trustee of Brandywine Realty Trust, will share these and other benefits that CRE stands to gain from KOP Rail, and offer perspectives on how this transformative project will keep our region competitive in the global market.

Register for this FREE webinar on Thursday, March 21 from 12:30-1 PM.
