Sidewalk Signs Point to Farview

Post and photos by the Hawthorne Hawkman.

Yesterday as I was walking over to the Bangkok Market for a serving of their delicious, healthy, and reasonably priced Laab duck, I saw this spray-painted sign directing people to Farview Park. The lack of a banner and the plain black font are a little too bare bones for my taste, but this is a good start.

Hawthorne members have spent considerable time planning ways to draw traffic from Lowry through the EcoVillage and to one of the great city amenities of Farview Park. Doing so is more than just a feel-good gesture; the family who moved into the LEED-certified house in the EcoVillage found out about the area by biking through the neighborhood.

I hope to see more items like this along Lowry, but this is a good start.

  1. Technically those spray painted signs on a public sidewalk are illegal graffiti, and violate city ordinance.

  2. Doubtful. Those don't bear the markings of an illegal spray paint job. They appear to be done with the blessing of the city or county. We can check on Monday though, anon 5:08.
