Planter Painting Policy

In the spring of 2021, the Public Arts Advisory Commission received a request to paint the City-owned concrete structures that are located in the right-of-way (ROW) at the intersection of Columbia Terrace and University Street. It was decided at that time that it was prudent to develop a policy to address not just the singular request but future requests for City-owned concrete structures located in the ROW, as the City desires to encourage the display of art in public spaces.
