The City of Duncan says starting today and for the next couple of weeks there will be work happening along Canada Avenue to remove the existing cedar hedge and install new landscaping.

We asked Mayor Phil Kent what is the purpose of the 50 thousand dollar landscaping initiative.

Kent says the work will cause very little disruption to motorists and locations where it does there will be traffic controllers.

He adds the ground landscaping will be drought resistant plantings while the trees in the long term will not need irrigation.
