Sign up to volunteer for the Pop-Up North Marina Paint and Installation Day that will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, January 21. Participants will meet at Fort Harrison Avenue and Seminole Street. To volunteer, contact Lawrence Young Jr., the city of Clearwater's neighborhood coordinator, at Lawrence.firstname.lastname@example.org or (727) 562-4559.
The event will engage residents and volunteers to work in teams to paint a sidewalk extension, paint a crosswalk, install planters and install benches along Fort Harrison Avenue.
The Pop-Up North Marina project will feature temporary installations for possible improvements using paint and materials on top of several existing streets in the North Marina area that has a boundary of Nicholson Street to the north, Osceola Avenue to west, the Pinellas Trail to the east and Georgia Street to the south.
These improvements will feature traffic calming, protected areas for pedestrians and bicyclists, sidewalk extensions, on-street parking, enhanced landscaping, flower planters designed by the community, benches, painted pavement art and wayfinding signage.
The two-month-long installation will test recommendations regarding future streetscape improvements to evaluate how it works and if permanent changes should be made.
The project follows an extensive community engagement process for the North Marina Area Master Plan where residents and stakeholders shared their ideas.
