This is a great neighborhood project that I had the opportunity to work on and complete. The tiles were painted by neighborhood kids around seven years ago. The neighborhood group had struggled to find the necessary funding to complete the project. The situation changed in 2014 when partial funding for this project was provided by the District 10 Supervisors office, other funding came from Public Works, and additional resources were provided by the Quesada Garden initiative group.
This was a challenging project because of the initial condition of the stairs, but Public Works Cement Shop did a great job leveling and setting the tiles on stairs that were uneven and worn. The riser tiles had to be individual cut so that the images matched across multiple tiles. Lots of lessons learned with this project, but very satisfying to see it finished.
