Historic Bus Stop Restoration

 

The ADIC is sponsoring Owen Bourdages, a Tamalpais High School student, to paint a mural on the bus stop wall at Rosemont and Almonte Blvd. It is currently in progress- we are very excited about this local artist making a work of art that we can all enjoy!

 

Here is what it looks like before and after the mural completion.  Thank you to the artist Owen Bourdages!

Historic Bus Stop Restoration

Work-in- Progress-Repair and painting by neighborhood volunteers

 

Currently neighbors of Almonte are interested in restoring the historic bus stop in the parking lot of Redwood security on the corner of Almonte Blvd and Wisteria. The bus stop has been there since the 1930’s and is an icon for Almonte residents. The building is in serious need of repair. The ADIC is simply acting as a nonpartisan facilitator to gather names and email addresses of people who are interested in helping with this project. So please email the ADIC with your information.
