City of Milwaukee to hire local artist to help develop creative solutions to reckless driving

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A new pilot program in Milwaukee looks to address reckless driving in the city.

A local artist will be hired to develop artist-driven solutions to complex civic challenges.

For this pilot year, the artist will create innovative approaches to address reckless driving and hopefully create safer neighborhoods.

“This is an opportunity for new collaboration between Milwaukee’s artistic community and city government,” said Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson. “We know that creative solutions, access to resources, and a renewed commitment to partnerships will help address the challenges we face as a community, including our continued fight against reckless driving. The PAIR program will be another tool for the city to utilize in creating safer neighborhoods and improving the quality-of-life for Milwaukee residents and families.”

The city plans on hiring the artist for the pilot program soon. The deadline to apply is Aug. 22.
