What? A day long community event painting the corner of Union Street with a road mural. Neighbors from Union Triangle, Darbo Drive, Worthington Park and SASY will all join together to help.
When? Sept. 5, 2015 from 9 a.m. to dusk.
Where? On the corner of the 2900 block of Union Street and Clyde Gallagher, near the Madison bike path.
Why? This is a placemaking event. We intend to beautify the space while further developing the space as a place for neighbors to gather. It's also a community event to bring together people from different neighborhoods.
News interest: During the last year the Union Triangle neighborhood has been organizing to help reduce crime, improve the look and feel of the area and reach out to neighboring communities. This came after a shooting on North Marquette Street in broad daylight in July 2014. The community has galvanized through events such as neighborhood picnics and planting trees and shrubs along Starkweather Creek. This is our most ambitious event yet.
More details, and quotes from Madison Eastside Police Captain Mary Schauf and Alder Marsha Rummel, will be released on Monday, Aug. 31.
