We have a vision for a new 300 West: a low-stress bicycle boulevard that connects people on bike and foot with UTA’s Provo Central station, Amtrak, Franklin neighborhood, Provo City Hall, downtown, Timp neighborhood, Provo Rec Center, IHC’s Utah Valley Hospital, Provo River Trail, and so much more.
To bring it about, we will be making temporary changes to the street to show Provo City and its residents how safe and friendly this street can be. This is called tactical urbanism.
But we can’t do any of this without your help. Here’s what you can do:
1. Design the artwork to be painted on the street. Winners are eligible for lots of prizes from local bike shops. Learn more about needed art and submit your ideas here: http://www.bikeprovo.org/open-call-for-urban-art-help-design-the-300-w-neighorhood-bikeway-tactical-urbanism-project/
2. Volunteer or donate money. We need all the help we can get painting the street and paying for supplies. If you intend to volunteer, please indicate on this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd4t12Iu8OHCbHjVqrXxheWIQWh9XTeC8BXivHYgGKSj9TkFQ/viewform?usp=sf_link
The project will begin at 8pm on Friday, July 26 and we will paint through the night. Please attend and invite your friends! Together we can demonstrate a low-speed bikeway that safely connects people on bike and foot to major destinations and show the city how good it can be. Join us!
