We are Virinia and Justin Hovland, and we live at 1580 SE Sherrett Street. We are hoping to --Short term: Install an intersection painting at 16th and Sherrett --Long term: Build a cob bus stop bench and any other ideas gathered from community input --Get to know our neighbors better, and help them get to know each other better --Make the street safer for our vulnerable neighbors (elementary and middle school children, and assisted living center residents) --Have an ongoing project that brings the community together. We are hoping this project will promote: safety, communication, creativity, and shared resources within the community.
