Such themes might make sense in other neighborhoods just not mine. I would be in favor of cases where it reflects the heritage or current aspirations of those neighborhoods.

Hi! Tell us more about the roads that need to be repaired. If including scenery what else could be done to improve them? Some will respond with an art project exactly like this.

Keep in mind road maintenance in itself is a continual process which draws funds from dedicated sources. A bond will allow for more lasting changes. I don't see the need to choose between one or the other. The last bond in which I voted for has greatly improved the shape of the city.

Each project in the bond will have an art committee. The committee operates within guidelines. The money for a library branch's art project can't go to a sculpture on Main Plaza, for instance... it would have to go to art that would be installed at that library branch. The money for the art will go to whatever project(s) the art committee for each project decide it will go.

Since it's only 1% of a larger project, it's not going to be defined before the election. The committees that will make the final decision probably haven't been formed yet.
