The City recently thanked members of the Lafayette School’s 6th grade class for painting the utility box located at the intersection of Shute Street and Dunster Road.

The class participated in the Mayor’s ongoing initiative to paint utility boxes around the City in an effort to curb graffiti and vandalism and encourage and promote art and beautification.

“I am thrilled at the level of participation we have had to add artwork to our City’s utility boxes,” states Mayor DeMaria, “Local artists, youth organizations, and now junior high school art students in our City are doing an excellent job of making our City a cleaner and more beautiful place.”

Other artists or groups interested in participating should contact Alyson Dell Isola, Director of Communications, at 617-394-2454.
