Build a Better Block
Is your block losing its luster? Whether vacant storefronts, unsafe streets, weedy lots or seedy strips hinder your neighborhood, Better Block offers solutions for building a better place.
Better Block began as a weekend-long project in one Dallas neighborhood (think Extreme Home Makeover on steroids). Now it’s taking the country by storm. Using temporary demonstrations to test out pop-up businesses, create more inviting public spaces and add life to a tired block, Better Block projects transform scruffy, underused streets into vibrant and walkable places. These locally driven demonstration projects bring neighbors together to envision and experience an area’s potential.
Learn about Better Blocks and how they are catalyzing revitalization in communities across the country on this month’s free CommunityMatters® conference call, Wednesday, September 25th from 4-5pm Eastern.
