Call to Artists!
This project is as much of a pedestrian safety project as it is a neighborhood improvement project. Residents should be to able to confidently and safely traverse Grant Avenue on foot - to enjoy the neighborhood as a whole. The traffic calming medians are intended to be decorative, reflecting the community’s support of pedestrian safety. The unique artwork will remind drivers that they are traveling through a neighborhood where people are concerned about everyone’s safety.
There will be four raised medians, one set at Grant and Calhoun, the other set at Lynn Street. Design proposals must not be too detailed or distracting. We ask that one of the colors used is neon-yellow, matching the pedestrian crosswalk signs.
All are encouraged to submit their design ideas, especially nearby schools and local groups. Download the design flyer here and drop off or mail your design to:
