Beautify St. Louis with Neighborhood Pride and Other Art

This idea is inspired by Atlanta's "Living Walls, the City Speaks" organization, and the recent "Shaw" painting on the NE corner of Tower Grove Ave and Shaw (see 1st image). See Living Walls, the City Speaks Facebook Page or Google Image search for example of the creative use of their walls.,+the+City+Speaks&hl=en&client=safari&tbo=d&rls=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=x-ukUNmFGej7ygGw_YDoBA&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAA&biw=1148&bih=582


Glass Wall Observation Box Atop the Arch

In May of 1961, the Post Dispatch printed a design for an observation deck built in to the top of the Arch with a glass bubble top for a vast panoramic view from the top of the Arch. That concept was never built and might have detracted from the beauty of the Arch. But today, we could build an unobtrusive outdoor high glass wall rectangular box on top of the Arch that would allow visitors to scale a few stairs and stand on top of the Arch within the box for a spectacular view. It could have no lid, and would only be erected in the summer.

The Wilt/Bloom Initiative : Garden Project

The Wilt/Bloom Initiative is a non-governmental organization which concerns itself with transforming vacant spaces into usable public spaces that serve the greater good. The projects under this title will mainly involve urban agriculture, vertical farming, and community gardening, but may also include hydroponic and aquaponic projects. We are interested, not only in informing the public about how to do these things, but with helping them hands on.


Helping Kids Make Money - and a FUTURE

Jobs for teens have dropped across the nation but especially in the Lou. Funding for student employment from typical places like the federal government has been slashed. So what's a kid to do this summer? By working together, we can raise enough funds to help 500 neighborhood young adults find meaningful employment AND help area businesses afford to hire them, train them, and get them ready for the future.
