The first round of fire hydrant painting in Forest Park Southeast focused on Manchester Avenue and further branding The Grove. Now the effort is moving onto the north-south residential streets and a new, subdued design is being offered. I would have liked to see something that played off the colors of the hydrants already painted. Why not paint them a matching yellow with the new pattern? I’m nitpicking, but why the schizophrenic hydrants? New paint scheme rendering is courtesy of the Washington University Medical Center Redevelopment Corporation (WUMCRC).
