Proposed Bartlett memorial at train station.
At its next meeting ( https://goo.gl/o0ByHt ) the Monrovia City Council will, among other things, consider ...
~ Stamping poetry into the sidewalks of east-west streets, and tidbits of Monrovia history into north-south streets. It'll cost $7,000 the first year for 10 sidewalk panels, paid for by an existing art tax on developers. Short poems would be selected through an annual contest open to all ages. https://goo.gl/xSHuRK
~ Also, the company developing the "MODA at Monrovia Station" multi-family project proposes to pay its art tax with a $264,000 shimmering mosaic waterfall on the side of the building. https://goo.gl/1dl8FM
~ A recommendation by the Bob Bartlett Memorial Tribute Committee to spend $30,000 (again, in art-tax money) to hire artist Carole Choucair Oueijan based on her proposal (see above) for a mosaic sculpture honoring Bob Bartlett. https://goo.gl/WZONy9
