Dear Neighbours and Community Members,
Working with the Mount Pleasant Elementary School, we would like to encourage awareness of our local natural history through painting a mural on the asphalt of St. George Street between 7th Avenue and 8th Avenue. Its design would acknowledge the creek that used to run along St. George Street, now flowing underground in sewer pipes.
Many of you have heard about this project. Here are a couple of updates:
1) The creek’s headwaters (near St. George St and 13th Avenue) have recently been recognized with a new storytelling bench at Robson Park, thanks to the efforts of the Vancouver Society of Storytelling.
2) Happily, we are one of three projects that have been selected by VIVA Vancouver for support this year. VIVA transforms street sections into enjoyable public spaces.
We invite you to a community design workshop for this street mural from 7:00 to 8:00 pm, Tuesday, May 8, 2012, at Mount Pleasant Elementary (in the library).
This is a public meeting open to anyone curious about this project. If you’re unable to attend, we would still welcome your input at the following website: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MJJ7LDM
