|Project to Make Curbs More Visible A new project in Warr Acres aims to help older drivers by making dark street corners easier to see and navigate. The first curbs to be painted were at the corner of N.W 46th Street and N. Meridian Avenue. It all began when resident Marian Edgman called city hall with her painting idea and was given the phone number of Warr Acres Beautification Committee Chairperson Jan Blake. Ms. Blake said she talked to Street Department Supervisor Bill Robertson about the possibility of the city painting the curbs. "He said there is no money in the budget for the project, so we decided to do it ourselves," she said.
