Volunteer to help Build a Better Block with your neighbors, August 22 – 25

To make the best use of your time, you can volunteer to work on specific projects. But hey, if you’re a real go-getter, sign up for as many build teams as you like. Just what does each team do?

  • Streets and Public Spaces: Learn and help create ways to make a better multi-modal experience for all. These workshops will include traffic calming as well as building parklets and urban furniture.
  • Art and Beauty: Create new ways to beautify your block. The workshop will focus on storefront upgrades, public art, and murals.
  • Pop-up / Programming: Create vibrant public spaces with pop-up activities. These workshops will focus on building a stage, seating elements and setting up the pop-up shops for the event.
