Envisioning Safe STreets

Volunteers express safer streets through art in the parking lot of Dawson Avenue & 7th Street in Rose Park Neighborhood.

On Monday, August 17th Rose Park residents and volunteers arrived masked and ready to work using chalk and spray paint with stencils to display the feedback of residents and surrounding neighbors for safer, accessible streets and equitable spaces. Thank you to Rose Park resident and artist Cody Lusby for leading the street art action and to the volunteers who participated in the summer heat! We also appreciate Matt Hamilton who provided us with permission to use the parking lot for our street safe art!

On Tuesday, August 25th at 11am, Rose Park Neighborhood Association President Gretchen Swanson will host an online pedestrian safety training workshop for older adults via zoom. Email info@rpna.org to participate.

In September, Rose Park Neighborhood Association will present it’s findings in a report to the city council.
