The Better Block Wrap-Up

We had an amazing weekend, and the community rallied around our Better Block project. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the turnout and reception from everyone who attended. From council members, to Urban Planners, to longtime residents…everyone embraced the concept of developing Dallas’ first “complete street”. Children played in areas that cars usually ruled, families dined outside in parking spaces, and bicyclists pedaled throughout the mix.

Check out the great press we’ve had so far:
