South Main Public Arts Initiative: Phase 2 - Guidelines and Application

The Public Works Agency is teaming up with the Arts and Culture Commission to integrate public art into the community’s daily life along the South Main Street corridor. The City of Santa Ana’s Public Works Agency is issuing a Call for Public Art Proposals (CFP) to artists or art teams with connections or ties to Santa Ana for original designs embedded into the reconstruction along South Main Street between 1st Street and Dyer Street. The timeframe for project completion is 1 year or less from full execution of the agreement. A panel will review completed proposal submittals and award multiple artists/teams for their designs.
The deadline for online proposal submission is Monday, June 6, 2022, at 11:59 PM (PST).

Underground fiber optic conduit

During the City’s extensive community outreach efforts for the South Main Construction Project, the community voiced concerns about adding high-speed communication lines (fiber) to the infrastructure during construction. Although the City had shared plans of the project with communication companies throughout the years leading up to this project, there were no plans for fiber to be installed.

After hearing from the community, the City reached out to several communication companies and urged them to take advantage of our construction and install new infrastructure. To incentivize the companies to act quickly, the City offered to perform their final paving obligation with the South Main Project, resulting in major costs savings for the communication companies. Verizon Wireless agreed to participate and has now installed over 2.5 miles of fiber throughout the corridor!
