Pedestrian Pavers 2021

FC Youth

Since 2002, the Pedestrian Paver Project has worked with the City’s Engineering and Streets Departments to incorporate granite pavers with drawings by youth community members aged 3 to 18 years into City sidewalks.

The designs are selected through an open call process and each young artist receives an honorarium for their work. The designs are then sandblasted into granite pavers and the pavers are placed throughout Fort Collins during sidewalk improvements. Roughly 15 drawings are selected from about 150–450 entries a year.
