Benches and Public Art on the River Trail

Submitted by Denise Auvenshine, Eaton Rapids Resident

My idea is…

“…to remove these beautiful benches from Kalamazoo St to Elm St on Cedar St and place them throughout the river trail. I drive this road daily and they are not near any bus stops and are NEVER sat in. If you place them throughout the river trail, they will be used. I also think that with all the florists in town and garden shops, they could donate a bundle of flowers and plant them throughout the city streets to make it more appealing to the eye.

I’d like to see more art throughout the city as in Old Town/Reo Town. I’d like to see more of big bold art (like in downtown Grand Rapids) all over the place. I think that would have to include painted murals as well.”

My idea contributes to a vibrant community by…

“Many people like art and attractive places.  The flowers on the streets and big bold art, even murals on buildings attracts people.”
