Lechner Avenue Chicanes

Friends of the Hilltop adopted the chicanes (a type of traffic calming element) on Lechner Avenue (south of West Broad Street). View Map Since the City of Columbus placed the chicanes, Friends of the Hilltop has cleaned and maintained these traffic calmers. We have added topsoil, shrubs, annuals and groundcover perenials. Many volunteer hours have been spent weeding and cleaning the gutters around the chicanes.

If you would like to donate topsoil, annuals, or perenials, please contact Friends of the Hilltop. Because of the trees in the chicanes, we can utilize both shade-loving and sun-loving plants. Yuccas, day lillies and other low growing plants seem to do well.

Friends of the Hilltop is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
