The “Better Block” project is a community revitalization effort that temporarily demonstrates how to improve a commercial street with pedestrian and public infrastructure mixed with art, culture, pop-up businesses and street life. For one day, the project will fill vacant storefronts, create pedestrian seating areas, provide landscaping and street furniture, redraw the street, provide live music, and more. Better Block aims to create quick, inexpensive, high-impact changes that lead to permanent solutions for areas in Denver.

We are looking forward to seeing you on June 23rd!
