Chetwynd, British Columbia

(a converted post office dating to 1949) displays artifacts and re-creations of the town's frontier times, and nostalgia pieces from the construction of infrastructure through the Rocky Mountains. A public art program, started in 1987, showcases over 50 chainsaw carvings spread throughout town with a downtown monument that declares Chetwynd the "Chainsaw Sculpture Capitol of the World". The town's first annual chainsaw carving contest was held in June 2005. A regular contestant in the Communities in Bloom contest, the District built four wind turbines in 2004 to power decorative lights on 25 large trees along its boulevard as an entry to the WinterLights Celebration contest. , is located adjacent to Chetwynd (Chetwynd, British Columbia), British Columbia, Canada.

For example, the poverty, the slums, the indifferent nature of the common man etc. The sobriquet "dying city" is also not there in the article any more. Can you suggest where to or how to integrate such aspects?--Dwaipayanc (User:Dwaipayanc) 05:33, 31 March 2006 (UTC) :You can craft the most alarming or important negative aspects (slums, suicide, unemployment, etc) into a one-sentence description in the lead while relegating less important negative details to "Demographics". You can have a look at Chetwynd, British Columbia (note how they incorporate crime stats and other negative info). On the other hand, I don't think there's a big problem with "whitewashing" in this article — as long as slum stats, crime, poverty rates, etc are dealt with, you don't need to worry about including every negative epithet used for the city. Other than doing light copy-editing (I've done some) and the advice given by others, I don't have much to add. This is getting close to featured status, and we can have (LOL) three Bengal-related FACs (Bangladesh, Rabindranath Tagore, and Kolkata) up for review at the same time. Saravask (User:Saravask) 08:08, 31 March 2006 (UTC) ::Crime stats have been added, to some extent. Some "negative" statements like the depressive economy in 1970s and 1980s have been added. Unreferenced statement on people living in streets and footpath have also been added. Poverty rates could not be added due to lack of reference. Copyedits are going on. Please help!--Dwaipayanc (User:Dwaipayanc) 16:58, 1 April 2006 (UTC) (Self-nomination) I think this would make a good featured article. It has lots of detail, applicable pictures, is fairly clearly written, comprehensive and relatively stable. JoeBaldwin (User:JoeBaldwin) 00:13, 4 April 2006 (UTC) :'''Object'''. You might want to have a look at the featured article criteria (Wikipedia:What_is_a_featured_article) and check some things. First, there is no reference section at all and FA criteria requires inline citations. I'd also move the graphic at the bottom to a better position. The stub tag is still on the article and shouldn't be. Business, Industry, and Transport seems subsectioned to death -- might want to strike some of those. Also, some of the lists should be turned into prose, particularly the one under bus. It's a very nice start, but I think it has quite a bit to go before being ready for FA. It also needs a peer review (Wikipedia:Peer_review) to help work on the actual writing. Chetwynd, British Columbia may be helpful reading for those working on this article. Thanks! Air.dance (User:Air.dance) 02:33, 4 April 2006 (UTC) :'''Object'''. Needs to go to peer review, be referenced and have citations. Some things that would have been raised in a peer review: History section very short; geography only a single sentence about the river. Need sections on local politics; newsworthy events over the years. Demographics should have ethnic and religious breakdowns and age profiles. What percentage of the people living in the town were born there? Is there a movement to move the airstack elsewhere due to noise complaints? The section at the end of Recreation about youths causing trouble (if this is important to keep) could easily be cited from local newspaper reports or politicians' statements. For reference and ideas on expansion, a trip to the local library (I assume you're from the town) should pay dividends. Amazon listed about 12 books with Chesham; the British Library lists 91. (Not all will be relevant). But have a look at the town and city articles that have been featured (as suggested above, plus Sheffield) to see how it works. I hope this is useful. --BillC (User:BillC) 22:07, 5 April 2006 (UTC) **I suggest that history is expanded. As of now, the history only reaches up to 1600, which IMO isn't very comprehensive (perhaps add recent events?) **The rest of the article is simply a list of buildings. More can certainly be added: culture, demographics, government structure, etc. For an example of a featured town, see Chetwynd, British Columbia (other FA cities can be found in Wikipedia:Featured_articles#Geography_and_places). I suggest that this article follow a similar format to those found in the above category (same goes with Chew Stoke). Thanks, ''AndyZ (User:AndyZ)''  t (User talk:AndyZ) 19:18, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Pittsburgh

*Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program is the largest street art program in the United States. I began in 1984 as an effort spearheaded by then Mayor Wilson Goode to eradicate the graffiti crisis plaguing the city. Muralist Jane Golden was hired to reach out to graffiti writers and to redirect their energies from destructive graffiti writing to constructive mural painting. Today, over 3,000 murals painted by local artists and artists from all over the world can be found throughout Philadelphia. The award-winning program has earned Philadelphia international praise as the "City of Murals". http: muralarts.org about history *Pittsburgh's murals funded by The Sprout Fund were named the "Best Public Art" by the ''Pittsburgh City Paper'' in 2006.
