Placemaking With Playful Sidewalks

by Tanya Zwahlen

Last weekend, Jen Topa helped to organize, advertise, and orchestrate a sidewalk painting event on South Clinton Avenue as part of our contract with the City of Rochester as Street Liaison. The event was called Playful Sidewalks, and was aimed at enhancing the pedestrian experience and encourage walking, economic activity and public safety.

Below are some photos before the rain started. Jen and her volunteers will finish the last site on Saturday, June 30th at 10:30am. Stop by if you want to help!
