933 bridge

Volunteers are needed to work on the 117,000-square-foot mural project on the Indiana 933 bridge between Angela Boulevard and Northshore Drive. Help is needed on weekdays through September between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. No artistic talent is necessary, and volunteers will be supervised on-site by local artists. This opportunity is open to individuals and groups of up to 20. For more information, contact volunteer coordinator Sarah Heintzelman at s.heintzelman1920@gmail.com or 574-621-8969.

This project is one of several developed out of the Actionable Economic Development Forum, a group of local leaders from business, economic development, city government and the Chamber of Commerce, convened in the spring by the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County. This group of 40 worked to identify specific local economic and social challenges, brainstorm solutions and launch fast-track pilot projects to address them—achieving significant results in a short period of time.

The Actionable Economic Development Forum was made possible by the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County, the University of Notre Dame, Judd Leighton Foundation and Union Station Technology Center.
