About Better Block:
The "Better Block" project is a demonstration tool that temporarily redesigns an area to show the potential to create a great walkable, vibrant neighborhood center. The project creates a real life model for the community to actively engage in "complete streets" design concepts. Pop-up businesses are also developed to allow the community to see the potential for revitalized economic activity in an area.
