Brief Description

The Old Town Keller Improvements Project is aimed at upgrading the infrastructure in one of the oldest areas of the city, and also includes amenities like landscaping, street lighting and public art. The city hopes to foster the development of Old Town Keller into an arts and entertainment district, with an eclectic blend of restaurants, shops and services. The portion of Bates St. where the public art benches will be installed will be reconstructed as a festival street featuring string lighting, gateway structures and food truck accommodations. Street construction is anticipated to begin in early 2022. The ideal bench will be useful, aesthetically pleasing, and contribute to the place-making goals of the improvements project. The City of Keller will provide a 4"x6" plaque for each bench to include artwork title, artist name and year of installation.
