BELLINGHAM - The Happy Valley Community Crossroads group has chosen a design for a planned mural on the asphalt at the intersection of 22nd Street and Harris Avenue.
At a July 30 meeting, neighbors took two votes to choose the winner among 18 submitted designs. The winner was a colorful kaleidiscopic flower created by Willow Hughes, who is entering the sixth grade at Fairhaven Middle School.
Residents near the intersection are invited to a potluck barbecue from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 8, at Samish School, 2113 Harris Ave., to see the design and sign a proposal to be submitted to the city of Bellingham.
Backers are hoping to use a grant to pay for the special paint needed for the project.
No date has been set for submitting the proposal to the city.
