'Paint the Pavement' program turns sidewalks and streets into works of art

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Department of Public Works is encouraging people to add a little color to their neighborhoods.

The new "Paint the Pavement" program will turn sidewalks and streets into works of art.

This is an extension of the city's decorative crosswalk program.

So, if you've got a great idea for street mural - apply for a "Paint the Pavement permit.

More information can be found below:

The 'Paint the Pavement' guide outlines specific location and design guidelines for each mural type.

The application is a two-step process, and consists of a 'Paint the Pavement Permit' application and a Special Event Permit (sidewalk applications do not require a Special Events Permit).

There is no fee for the 'Paint the Pavement' Permit; however, applicants will be charged a fee for any barricades provided through the Special Event Permit.
