Vandalism Vigilante

via Big New Ideas > http://bignewideas.com/blog/?p=230

A simple idea of painting public seating.   “Civic-minded, young, creative people looking to improve our park and while the park’s department approved of our intention they disapproved of our methods.”

This story is yet another reminder of why public space management models ought to be re-looked at.  If this happened in Brisbane, I somehow bet the same reaction in some places.  How frustrating that is can not be seen as a win-win?  Community ownership/action + better spaces = Less Council resources/budget.
