Placemaking Event – Build a Better Block in Haymount

Build a Better Block, Build a Better Haymount is a one day event that demonstrates the potential of an area through TEMPORARY treatments such as bike lanes, cross walks, street trees, street lights etc. to demonstrate how walkability can be achieved through minimal adjustments to the transportation grid.

A placemaking grant has been approved through the National Association of REALTORS® and the goal of the event is to create a pedestrian friendly area for the day.  This is a unique opportunity to see the practical possibilities and stimulate conversation about this well recognized and prized area of the community.

Build a Better Block helps demonstrate how automobile-dominated streets can be transformed into places where automobile, pedestrian and cyclist can all be adequately accommodated.
