At the initiative of community members, Jill Turman, a local artist designed and built, on both sides, steel compositions which are based on actual buildings in the area thus transforming the unsightly structure into a piece of art. The sculpture was dedicated in 2000, and has become a source of community pride and identity.
Wish there were more such communities/civic authorities in the World.
