Westbrook resident Mike Shaughnessy wants to paint streets in Westbrook much like the Jarrett Grove street painting in Portland, Oregon.
Former mayoral candidate Mike Shaughnessy has proposed painting murals and colorful designs directly onto some streets in Westbrook. He presented the idea to the City Council in a workshop meeting Monday night where it met with some concerns, primarily about safety issues.
He said he got the idea to paint the streets after seeing painted streets in Portland, Oregon. Streets have also been painted in other Oregon citiesas well as cities in Washington and Wisconsin.
In Westbrook, Shaughnessy wants to start by painting the intersection of Brown and North streets.
Street painting unites neighborhoods and gives people pride in where they live, Shaughnessy said. He said this would have a positive impact on the Frenchtown neighborhood. Councilors were supportive of the idea, but were also wary of unknown consequences. One of the biggest concerns was the distraction the painted streets could create for drivers.
Other councilors had safety concerns as well and said they were worried about the effect the paint would have on tire traction. Dudley said this safety hazard could create more of a liability for the city if an accident occurred in the proposed intersection.
He said painting the streets would also take city out of compliance with federal uniform guidelines for street consistency.
Dudley said standard road markings usually need paint touch ups each spring, but Shaughnessy said repainting would be seen as a positive aspect of the project. He said this could reduce crime because neighbors will look out for each other more. He said he believes this money could be raised through donations.
Shaughnessy said the low cost would result in a high payoff for the city.
The council decided it wants more information on the consequences of painting the streets before it moves forward with the idea. City Administrator Jerre Bryant said Wipfler and other city staff will gather information and report back to the council on July Despite concerns, the City Council agreed painting the streets sounds like it might be a good idea.
