Location Survey #2 (aka the final vote) has been tabulated, and the results reviewed with the Creative Action Team to make decisions based on it.
Here is a summary of what you've told us!
Total respondents for location survey #2: 35
People attending Walking Tour #2: ~ 23
It is most important that the mural location provide opportunities for:
LOCATION PREFERENCE: MAIN SITE
Please rank your preference for the primary mural location
*Option A: Pedestrian Pathway North of Atria Covell Gardens - 15 votes
Option B: Hacienda Avenue Cul-de-sac near greenbelt - 13 votes
Option C: Blue / Spiderman Park near Eagle Place - 7 votes
SECONDARY SITE PREFERENCES
Survey respondents could either vote to rank the sites by preference or simply write "no" for sites they didn't want painted. The most popular feasible sites are listed below starting with the most popular.
*1st Choice: Pathway Icon on Greenbelt near Bianco Court and Chautauqua Apartments
2nd Choice: Mini-Mural at Hacienda
3rd Choice: Mini-Mural as Concrete Pad of Blue/Spiderman Playground
We currently have enough funds to paint The Pedestrian Pathway North of Atria Covell Gardens (Option A), the Pathway Icon on the Greenbelt near Bianco Court, and about 1/8 the area of Hacienda Court. 4 people volunteered to help fundraise for enough paint for the secondary sites via the survey, and will be working over the coming months to supersize this project with a more generous budget.
You can donate now to fund MORE MURAL ART art at Hacienda Avenue cul de sac and Blue/Spiderman Park.
"No Go" sites:
Sites vetoed by survey responses:
These are the sites were eliminated as possibilities because that received the at least 4 "NO" votes and/or received very few 1st choice rankings.
Sidewalk at Antelope Alley (aka Halloween/Pumpkin Alley)
Pathway between Impala and Elk Places
Antelope and Quail intersection
Brown Belt Crossings
Y pathway intersection Northeast of Dominos*
* The Y intersection received many 1st choice votes, but was determined not feasible by the Creative Action Team because it received an equal number of “NO” votes.
Sites not feasible:
The crosswalk at Quail was ranked highly by survey respondents, but is not currently feasible due to unclear regulations and requirements from Public Works department.
This is a great time to remind you all that this mural is a project of the City of Davis Arts and Cultural Affairs program, and is supported in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
