Outdoor public art, such as statues, art structures and other design features, can benefit a community in many ways. Well placed and well designed public art can:
   A.   Create cohesion in the urban design of a community;
   B.   Provide a sense of community for individual neighborhoods, as well as the community at large;
   C.   Have a positive impact on the image of the community; and
