City to vote on spending $250,000 on three 'public art' bus stops
SAN ANTONIO -- The city could soon spend a quarter of a million dollars on three new bus shelters on the West Side.
If approved, the so-called "public art" bus shelters would be built near the intersection of South Brazos and Guadalupe Street. It's part of ongoing renovation projects along the West Side Cultural Corridor. The shelters are designed to resemble the look of a "front porch" common in the neighborhood.
"So people, when they drive by, they feel our cultural pride," said Patty Ortiz of the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center. "They learn more about our culture. So art can be everywhere in the streets."
The majority of the $250,000 price tag would be covered by existing "Community Development Block Grant" money.
City council will make a decision at its meeting on Thursday, September 5th.
