Art installations, sponsorship of roundabouts and closing off problem alleys are some of the ideas to improve Boston’s appearance.
The suggestions were made by councillors at a Boston Town Area Committee meeting on Wednesday.
Powers to shut off passageways which attract crime and anti-social behaviour could soon be handed down from the government.
Councillors suggested it could be used for Hatters Lane, next to Boston Sausage on the High Street.
Coun Mark Baker said: “It’s not straight, it’s got a kink in the middle and that’s where people hide to take drugs and use it to urinate.”
Coun Derek Richmond said he went down there frequently and said: “There’s all sorts down there, the (Town) Rangers go down and collect needles on an almost daily basis.”
Problems with Punchbowl Lane were also raised.
In another discussion, councillors asked their highways manager Andy Wharff how they could tidy up the approaches to Boston.
It was thought the grass verges leading to roundabouts could be cut more but concerns were raised about how much this could cost.
Coun Alison Austin said the roundabout near the Spirit of Endeavour was ‘appalling’ while Coun Yvonne Gunter said discarded carrier bags made areas look a ‘mess’.
It was suggested the council could look into getting sponsorship for roundabouts where greenscapers could use them as displays of their skill.
Another suggestion was to ‘concrete over’ certain roundabouts and put easy-to-maintain art installations symbolising the town in conjunction with projects such as Transported Art.
