“The purpose of this is three-fold. Obviously, we like to put out flowers; this is considered public art. In addition, this supports the Big Four and all the bicyclists that are coming,” she said. “Our intent, if these are well received, we’ll put some more out because our cost is relatively low. This also is kind of a visual representation for Jeffersonville as a place for bicyclists.”
The bicycle planters will be placed at Pearl and Market streets; Maple and Spring streets; Eight Street and Brim Drive; 10th and Pratt streets; 10th Street and Sportsman Drive; Tall Oaks Drive and Charlestown Pike; Eastern Boulevard and Spring Street; and Court Avenue and Graham Street.
The planters will be maintained by a nearby resident or business owner who has volunteered to help City Pride.
