Florin Road Community Beautification Project

"Art is Business" https://cleancalifornia.dot.ca.gov/local-grants/local-grant-program.

The Florin Road Community Beautification Project is a public outreach campaign, youth engagement, and beautification effort to improve the area from Tamoshanter Way through Franklin Boulevard on Florin Road. The project will coordinate with Sojourner Truth African Heritage Museum, Luther Burbank High School, Florin Road Partnership, local non-profits, and businesses to address litter and illegal dumping hot spots. This project will create public spaces for showcasing the culture and diversity of the Meadowview community. The project will include art installations on Florin Road, such as banners, murals, interactive structures, landscaping, museum signage, and public seating. High school interns conduct litter source assessments, adopt litter hot spots for clean-up, and design and promote litter abatement solutions. There will be opportunities for the community to be a part of the beautification efforts through community art projects, youth programming, and outreach events.
