Metra invites community art and gardens

From the Chicago Tribune:

Metra is looking for proposals from local community groups for "enhancement projects," including art, landscaping and gardening projects at its stations or other railroad property.

Participants must be able to fund their own projects, though in some cases the commuter train service said it can contribute some materials or workforce support to make the projects more lasting and safe.

Projects can include murals that reflect the characteristics of the community, freestanding sculptures, mosaics, photographs and the planting of flowers and shrubs. If you're interested, contact Community Affairs at 312-322-6753 or email
