This will create a point of school and neighborhood pride, and enhance safety for students (and everyone!) by making the corners more visible and providing additional space between pedestrians and traffic. We received Special Projects funding from Tomorrow's Neighborhoods Today (TNT) to purchase the supplies. The project was also reviewed and approved by the Syracuse Public Art Commission.
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! We will be painting the project on Sunday, August 8 (raindate: Sunday, August 15) from about 7:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. There are two main jobs for volunteers: (1) manning the barricades and (2) painting!
We have received a permit from the City to close Sunnycrest Road between Stafford Ave and Woodbine Ave, along with a short section of Forest Hill Drive near the school, to through traffic during the painting (see dates/times above). You can see the traffic closure area on this plan. We must have volunteers manning each of the four barricade locations at all times (to move the barricades in case emergency access is needed).
We also need people to help paint the mural! We'll be outlining it in chalk first, and then we'll need about 6 people to help with the painting (or more people, taking turns).
Adult volunteers only, please. We do not recommend that children participate since this involves working in the road.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are able to help, or have any questions about the project.
Also, please plan for an alternate route around the intersection during the project installation on the morning of August 8.
