The brainstorm closed on August 28. Thank you to everyone who took part.

How would you make the crosswalks on Pine, Johnson, Hoover, Polk, Dahlia, and Cherry more fun and visually interesting? The City of Louisville is looking for your ideas! Take a few minutes to share your thoughts as part of our brainstorm and help shape Louisville's Crosswalk Beautification Project.

Recent Construction

Over the last few months the City has been improving the safety and accessibility of many of Louisville's intersections and crosswalks with the aim of encouraging more walking and cycling in Louisville. The most notable work has been the investment in Pine Street as the City also works to deliver new bike lanes (due for completion by the end of August).

Opportunity

Now that the work to make the crosswalks and intersections safer and more accessible is almost complete, there's an opportunity to create a unique experience for pedestrians and cyclists at the crossings. But what will that look like? That's what we'd like to hear from you.

Fun, Beautiful, Safe, Sustainable

At present, the City is looking at 47 different areas - many of which are contained within the same intersection or crosswalk. So how do we think sustainably and minimize maintenance while creating something fun and beautiful? We're looking for ideas that are fun, beautiful, safe, and sustainable.

Something might be fun, but it might obstruct visibility for pedestrians. Something might be beautiful, but use too much water or cost too much to maintain in the long term, making it unsustainable. We need to balance all four criteria so please consider all four when making suggestions.

To give you some ideas we've included examples from other cities (which you can see in the pictures on the right). With sustainability in mind, you'll notice we haven't included any examples of landscaping as that isn't the direction this project will be taking.

Get Involved

We want to hear from as many residents as possible so please share your ideas - and then share this website with your neighbors and friends. Feel free to answer all of the questions or just one of them. We can't wait to hear from you! The brainstorm closes on Friday, August 28.

If you'd like to share some photo ideas, add them to our Flickr Group https://flic.kr/g/3fisen

Please note that this brainstorm is not a formal call for artists, but artists, like any member of the public, are welcome to share ideas through our survey below.
