Utah State landscape students work to improve Providence’s profile

LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Some Utah State University architecture and landscaping students are hoping to help give the city of Providence a stronger identity.The boundary between Providence and neighboring Logan blends together in a commercial district along State Road 165. A “Welcome to Providence” sign is even somewhat hidden.Last week, students enrolled in USU’s Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning program worked on a design plan to raise Providence’s profile.Associate professor David Bell says the ideas from students include constructing an arch over the town’s main entrance, the use of consistent building facades and planting the same trees along city streets.Bell says students will present their suggestions to the Providence City Council in about a month.
