WHAT IS A STEWARDSHIP FUND?

The City has a strong desire to demonstrate stewardship for the longevity of Art in Public Places.  The maintenance and upkeep of public art in the past has fallen short of expectation of the community. Community and art leaders feel strongly that this particular project should establish a dedicated fund limited to and for any maintenance related items such as graffiti removal, cleaning and repairs as needed in the future. The addition of lighting was an important project scope item which also will need to be paid for and repaired or replaced at times. Like all public art this project and its monumental presence is a showcase as a gateway to our community and region which will require it to be properly maintained for lifetime.
