Donna, the city of Des Moines has been approved to build a new library.  The 
plan includes a roof top garden  however it has many people objecting due to 
expense of bldg and the maintenance would be much to much for the city which is 
in a great financial situation currently.  It will be interesting to see what 
happens.  It would be a unique experience for our citizens but money is 
scarce.  Salt Lake City has wonderful gardens on top of an underground parking 
facility.  I love the plantings in Chicago on Michigan Ave and Grant Park.  The 
person who planned those island plantings came to Des Moines last yr and planned 
the new island beds on Fleur Dr from the airport to downtown.  These were 
wonderful and took on the same look as the Chicago islands.
