'Little Red Riding Hood' Could Be In Creve Coeur By Fall

City planners are nearing a contract to place an artistic bus shelter on Olive Boulevard.

Almost a year after selecting the design team to create a bus shelter near the and location on Olive Boulevard in Creve Coeur, city staff is entering what could be the final stretch before work begins this summer.

The process has been slowed in part by the need for a larger-than-anticipated easement on the property, which is still under negotiation.

While no contract has been signed between the city and the artists, City Council members have authorized the deal, and City Administrator Mark Perkins said he's hopeful the project will be complete by August or September. The contract will call for the structure to be the color red. It was first proposed as purple.

According to City Planner Whitney Kelly, the city arts commission has endorsed a change in city trespassing statutes to prohibit climbing on this and other public art projects.

"the city arts commission has endorsed a change in city trespassing statutes to prohibit this and other public art projects." Huh? Why? What was the vote? What do they want, more plastic and steel?

That's an error on my part, which I will correct to make more clear...they want to prevent people from CLIMBING on the structure.
