AND THEY ARE DETERMINED TO INSPIRE THE COMMUNITY WITH THEIR COLORFUL CREATIONS. DICK BRENNAN HAS THIS STORY. DAN PETERSON AND HIS CREW ARE ON DAY TWO OF A WEEK LONG PAINTING PROJECT. WE’RE ALSO FINDING THE COLOR AND THE SHAPE AND THE VIBRANCE INVITES A LOT MORE FAMILIES. THEY REDESIGN PUBLIC OUTDOOR BASKETBALL COURTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. HAVING A UNIQUE WORK OF ART CHANGES THE COMMUNITY’S RELATIONSHIP WITH THE SPACE. IT’S NOT JUST A VANITY PROJECT. THE COLOR AND THE SHAPE HAS A REAL IMPACT ON THE WAY PEOPLE WILL CARE FOR THIS PARK GOING FORWARD. THE TWO COURTS WERE IN SUCH BAD SHAPE THEY HAD TO BE PAVED OVER BEFORE THE GROUP COULD EVEN BEGIN. ONCE ITS COMPLETE THE DESIGNS WILL SHOW OFF THE CITY’S INITIALS IN ABSTRACT LETTERS NRNY FOR NEW ROCHELLE, NEW YORK. THIS IS STAGE 4 OF 6 STEPS TO REVITALIZE THE PARK COMPLETELY. WE’RE RENOVATING IT IN PHASES. IT’S A COMMUNITY THAT DESERVES THE BEST THAT WE CAN OFFER. IN JUNE THE CITY UNVEILED A NEW PLAYGROUND NEAR THE COURTS AND THE NEXT STEP IS TO REDO THE BASEBALL FIELD. PARENTS ARE ELATED. IT’S AMAZING TO SEE THE PARK, THE NEW FACE OF THE PARK BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING TO ENJOY IT. I THINK IT’S GOING TO BE A LITTLE BIT SAFER. SAFER AND MORE ALIVE THAN EVER BEFORE. IT’S GOING TO BE PACKED SUN UP TO SUN DOWN. IT’S DUE TO BE FINISHED THIS SATURDAY. UNTIL THEN THESE PAINT ROLLERS WILL BE SPINNING ALL WEEK. DICK BRENNAN, CBS2 NEWS. THE NBA PLAYERS ASSOCIATION
