You should start a project and paint Dillard and Fox Hollow

How cool would it be if someone, maybe you, spearhead a project and painted the no-car bike-through section of Dillard right before it meets Fox Hollow?  Dillard is practically a bike path, and this section is car free and is a very popular bike route between South Hilyard and Fox Fox Hollow. You should paint it and turn it into a park. Yes, you.  You know you wanted a project that brought more art into the city.  This doesn’t even require you closing the street!

Portland did it!  We can’t let them keep showing us up!
