On Monday I got an email, followed by a phone call with Bill Harris who works for the city.
He was very nice, and said the city's hands were tied and they tried to find a way to keep them -- but they have to go.
Save the flowers! Councilmember Lorie Zapf is collecting emails of support at firstname.lastname@example.org to show community backing and find a way to keep them in Clairemont. Send her your story, and let her know how much you like them!
Someone started a petition.
Bill Harris gave me this statement to post:
Be sure and check out this piece channel 8 did on it: http://www.cbs8.com/story/17338034/artist-wants-you-to-stop-and-notice-t...
There are now almost 70 stop sign flowers across Clairemont. Just 31 more until all 100 are planted.
Each one has its own page, and can be found on the map. Find the ones closest to you.
You can place comments directly on each pole. Your comment can even include a picture of you next to the flower!
The first few flowers lasted a year, going through several rain and wind storms, so I am confident the nearly 40 newly planted ones are OK. But if a flower near you needs some adjustment, let me know. Post a comment or email me at email@example.com
As soon as it's dry the planting will resume!
I've gotten a few requests to do their intersection. All of the poles have already been chosen. With over 60 to go, lots of Clairemont will have one nearby. I'm sorry if at the end your favorite pole wasn't transformed.
Happy New Year!
The pieces are over 60% done. Thank you to all the knitters that contributed their time and talent! I wouldn't be this far without you.
Now that the holidays are over I can ramp up again (and impose on some helpers!), and at this pace start installing on March 1st.
We should be done putting them up by mid March -- a celebration of spring as they spread across Clairemont.
There are three new Beverly's meetings scheduled:
Bring size 35 needles if you have them. At Michaels you can get get them for under $5 with a 40% off coupon.
I hope you can come join us!
