Albany - - Broad Avenue in Downtown Albany has a new look.
Keep Albany Dougherty Beautiful wrapped up its island dedication project today. There are now 9 islands of flowers as you drive down Broad Avenue.
The group put this blue star memorial marker in the island in honor of soldiers who have served in wars.
Organizers say it will help spruce up the area.
"As you know, how we look matters. When people come into our community they're going to be able to see these beautiful islands that we have planted," Organizer Judy Bowles says.
Mayor Willie Adams, as well as other community leaders helped put the final touches on the last island.
Two businesses have agreed to maintain the islands. Keep Albany Dougherty Beautiful is looking for seven more groups to fill the remainding spots.
The project took 5 weeks to complete.
