My idea is to…
“…have a community event-build sculptures using canned goods/boxed food products. All the products will go to local food banks to be distributed back to our community. The community can vote on their favorite display. As a prize the winners will receive an article in the local newspaper sharing their story which promotes their business or organization.
You could establish guidelines such as their art work must fit in two parking spaces and you use Washington Square as the area to build/display
Any group/org can sign up. Could be a local business, a sports team, a girl scout troop, a non profit, etc.”
My idea contributes to a vibrant community by…
“People of all ages can attend. It gets our community out and about.
As the capital city of Michigan it promotes our town and through communication brings people to the downtown area whether they are in Lansing or a surrounding community.”
