After 2 ½ years of planning, designing, and advocating, the Linda Vista community is excited to see its first intersection mural come to life! Intersection murals are unique traffic calming mechanisms that serve to beautify a community, build community empowerment, and create safer environments for pedestrians. This mural, located outside Montgomery Middle School, was designed and painted by residents and local artists through various community engagement processes. It is truly reflective of the community, inclusive of the views from Linda Vista to the west and east to the nod to bicycle and active transportation; from the book of knowledge and appreciation of education to the healthy eating and lifestyles through garden produce; and beyond. Bayside is honored to have supported and advocated alongside the local community, schools, Intersection Mural Network, and artists in making this once far off idea a reality.
