Fayetteville, Ark. – According to the city officials, the Utility Box Art Program is a graffiti abatement initiative of the Keep Fayetteville Beautiful Committee and the Police Department’s Community Policing Division.
The submission period opens today, and the deadline for proposals is 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16.
Per this year’s theme, “Follow the Flow,” proposals should celebrate and educate the public on the importance of keeping our local water ways clean with a focus on creek pollution, ground water pollution and/or storm water runoff and contamination.
Utility boxes measure approximately 6 feet high, 3 feet wide and 2 feet deep (6’ x 3’ x 2’). The four utility box locations are:
- Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. and S. College Ave. (near the old Jefferson School)
- S. Happy Hollow Rd. and E. Huntsville Rd.
- 15th St. and S. School Ave.
- Stephen Carr Memorial Blvd. and Interstate-49 northbound off-ramp
