Master Plan Siting Priorities
The following are priorities of the Public Art Master Plan for the City of Coral Springs. These strong suggestions to property owners will help create an overall pattern of artworks that contribute significantly to the image of Coral Springs.
University and Sample Intersection
Corners of intersection will have significant sculptures. The artworks must be clearly visible from traffic in all directions. An appropriate backdrop of building or landscape should be created to enhance the artwork. No trees or other plants will obscure the artwork from the intersection
Sample Road Between University Drive and Coral Springs Drive
All artworks, any form, will be set in the city property near the edge of Sample Road in order to create a collection of art within the Downtown. Trees and landscaping will be sited to provide a backdrop for the art and excellent viewing in the direction of traffic. One parking space or more may be required to accommodate the artwork. Strong colors in the art are encouraged. Proposed development of a signage system for Sample Road should incorporate a plan for artwork locations.
University Drive Intersections: Wiles Road, Royal Palm Boulevard, Atlantic Boulevard & Riverside Drive
This priority addresses any property or single development bordering both University Drive and one of the following roads: Wiles Road, Royal Palm Boulevard, Atlantic Boulevard and Riverside Drive. On these properties, artwork should be located on University Drive near the intersections. All forms of art are encouraged that can be integrated with the landscape or hardscape and have a strong visual presence for the automobile traffic.
Regarding the northwest and southwest sectors of the Community Development Master Plan, the Downtown Redevelopment should add an artist to the design team to assist in the creation of Contemporary Design-Integrated Public Art. ArtWalk: The Public Art Committee shall assist City Staff and the CRA with the selection of artwork pieces through calls for artists for commissioned pieces as well as artwork exhibitions.
