The Revitalize San Pedro Partnership is excited to release its Request for Proposals for the San Pedro Corridor Creative Placemaking Contest. San Pedro Corridor community members are invited to submit ideas for celebrating and enhancing the Corridor via inexpensive, small-scale placemaking projects. Placemaking can be used to improve all the spaces that comprise gathering places within a community – its streets, sidewalks, parks, buildings, and other public spaces – so they invite greater interaction between people and foster healthier, more social, and economically viable communities. Placemaking project examples include murals (on walls, streets, utility boxes, etc.), pop-up parks, moveable sidewalk seating, sculptures, and much more. Projects should be completed for $2,500 or less and by utilizing volunteers. The top three proposals will be awarded gift certificates to local businesses, and the first-place proposal will be completed by December 31, 2022.
Please contact RSPP Project Leader Cynthia Serna for additional information or questions: firstname.lastname@example.org, (505) 453-6499.
