Orange Line Busway Cleanup

As I took my daily walk along the Orange Line Busway today, I saw that crews were doing a major cleanup near the intersection of the busway and Kester Street. The planting had gotten very dense here and many homeless people were camping in the thicket. I can understand the homeless camping there, but the heavy cover provides shelter for those with less benign intentions and makes this section of the heavily used bike and walking path feel less safe.

I am not sure the plants chosen were the best for this section of busway. Surely there is something that would beautify the area and keep graffiti down without providing so much density. It will take some time, I guess, before the best balance is found there.
