The City of Cedar Rapids Public Works Department would like to invite area schools and organizations to participate in “Paint a Plow” and decorate a City plow blade, which will be used during winter snow removal efforts. The painted blades are then used on snow routes near the school or daycare which decorated the blade, giving children the chance to catch their artwork in action as crews keep Cedar Rapids’ streets clear of snow.
Paint a Plow will run weekly from September 11 - October 20, 2023.
Public Works staff will provide paint, brushes, and tarps when dropping off the plow blade.
SIGN UP FOR PAINT A PLOW
Photos of the blade creations can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org and will be shared on the City’s Facebook page (City of Cedar Rapids Iowa Government). Please include the name of the school or organization and a brief description of your creation.
Thank you to those who have participated in this program for our 2023-2024 winter season!
