The City of Sculpture organization has discussed the concept of sculptural bike racks for the past three years, but struggled to find the best way to implement the project, according to Welch.
“Luckily for us, Leadership Hamilton volunteered to find the sponsors for each bike rack and fundraised to sponsor some additional racks as a group,” Welch said. “With Leadership Hamilton’s help, City of Sculpture was able to work on the bike rack designs and figuring out the placement of the racks.”
Each year, the chamber’s Leadership Hamilton participants adopt a project with the goal of making a significant, lasting impact on the community.
“We hope to continue this project and provide bike racks throughout the city,” Welch said.
