Walkway.  Improved.

Our Public Works Department had the asphalt pathway along Reliez Station Road between Dianne Court and Glenside Drive repaved this week.  See photos.  We’re already getting some nice calls thanking us for this much needed maintenance activity.  Happy walking!




Resolve by Dennis Mudgett


Two Finalists Selected for Public Art in the Roundabout

On March 1st, the Lafayette Public Art Committee reviewed public art proposals for the new roundabout at Pleasant Hill Rd. at Olympic Blvd. and narrowed its selection to two finalists.  Artist David Mudgett from Walnut Creek, Ca. proposes “Resolve,” a 16 ft. sculpture made of eight, corten-steel connected dodecahedrons atop a five ft. pedestal.  Artist Gale Wagner from Oakland, Ca. proposes “Chameleon” a 17 ft. colorful, welded steel structure with four elements – a flowerpot, tree, chameleon and dragonfly.  The proposals will be available for public review in the Lafayette Library and Learning Center, Homework Center, for a two week period starting March 13, 2017.  The public is also invited to review and comment on the City’s website here.  The Public Art Committee will reconvene on April 12th and make a recommendation to the City Council for its May 8th meeting.
