    • Volunteers Needed - Subcommittee for project implementation.

  • Development (Late April 2017) - Two days to one week for creation of chalkboard wall.

    • Volunteers Needed - Subcommittee for project implementation + team for painting installation.

  • Launch (May 2017 through June 2017) - Kick off of wall includes PR campaign to local media and city officials present.

Where would this be located? (Exact location example would be great!)

  • Downtown Corridor, Main Street Washougal.

 

Why is your project a good fit for Washougal? (What solution does it solve?)

  • Problem: No effective means of surveying the community at large regarding perceived needs and improvements on quality of life.

  • Solution:

    • Interactive

    • Anonymous

    • Open to all participants

    • Does not discriminate

    • Low-cost

    • Easy to implement

    • Short term project with long-term value

    • Accessible

    • Sustainable

    • Educational - those who participate learn the desires & needs of others

    • Innovative - This has not yet been widely implemented in the PacNW

 

How much does it cost? (Do you have ideas for funding?)

  • Chalkboard Paint = $9.98 / Gallon or $12.98 / Gallon for Tintable

    • Amount of paint is dependent upon size of mural or sign

  • Set of 160 Colored Chubby Chalk Sticks on Amazon = $27.99

  • GOAL : Get above resources donated!
