DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The City Council has approved a proposal to place pianos outdoors on sidewalks and plazas in downtown Des Moines.

The council gave its blessing Monday to a plan from City Sounds: Des Moines Public Piano Project. Organizers say they want to have up to three pianos available around the city this summer. They say installation will begin in mid-June and that more pianos could be added in future years.

Co-organizer Larry James says the purpose "is to generate life on the street and generate activity."

The pianos will be bolted to the ground and will be covered and locked overnight and during rainstorms. They would be taken indoors during winter.
