Vote for ABC: Arts Beautification and Community Development

Art, Beautification and Community

We need your help in getting out the vote for “ABC: Arts Beautification and Community Development”. A Participatory Budget Ballot Measure.

This $95,000. proposal opens up the possibility for us to receive hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants for Vallejo that require matching funds. Money that can help us to improve our image, enrich our downtown Arts and Entertainment District and help create identity and pride in our neighborhoods.

Why vote for ABC, you ask?  Here’s Why!!!
  • Mobile video tours of our historic architecture and public art (also galleries, museums and links to events)  will encourage tourism and promote cultural education of our youth and citizens.
  • Quality professional murals will add diversity, beauty and a sense of fun, helping create a more dynamic downtown arts and entertainment district.
  • Creative signage, landmark sculpture and landscaping will help create identity and pride in 2 pilot Vallejo neighborhoods, engaging neighbors in a collaborative process that we hope to bring to all neighborhoods in Vallejo.


Matching grant money will make it possible for us to increase the arts within schools and neighborhoods, create cool mobile public art for community events like the 4th of July and Second Fridays, and create the possibility of so many other things we can only dream of now!
