The Bright Spot Program was established to enhance the appearance of Middletown and encourage the active participation of residents in beautifying our community. This initiative was launched over 20 years ago thanks to grant and sponsorship funding. Anyone can volunteer to sponsor or “adopt” the planters, such as businesses, individuals, or volunteer organizations. It is the responsibility of the sponsor to plant, weed, and water the planters as necessary throughout the season. KMB and City staff are available for guidance on plant materials and the design of the planters. Planters need to be planted by the end of May and they should be watered at least twice a week, depending on the weather conditions. For example, if there is an exceptionally dry, hot stretch of weather, the planters may need to be watered more than two times that week. Conversely, if there is a stretch of rainy weather, the planters may only need to be watered once if at all during the week. The sponsorship/adoption agreement is for an approximately 6-month period beginning May 1, or after the last spring frost, and ending at the end of October, or whenever the plants are at the end of their season.
