Young people in Fort St. John will get a chance to personalize the new wooden fence being built around the old Fort Hotel property.
The cities Celebrate! Fort St. John Committee (formerly known as the Communities in Bloom Committee) is spearheading a Community Art Mural Project.
It’s being put forward as a graffiti counter measure, and involves recruiting artists between 16 and 20, to design and paint murals on the fence.
Earlier this year, Council decided to tear down the old fence surrounding the property, and dished out $30,000 for a new and better constructed one.
Now, it has decided to spend another $3,000 for marketing and supplies for the mural project, with the funds to be taken from the 2010 Communities in Bloom budget.
