Call to Action! 
Kickoff
May 25th, 2022

 

Hello there! A two-day transformation is headed to the City of Garland near West Walnut Street October 2022, and we want to hear from you!
 

The goal is to provide the community and the medical district near West Walnut Street a community-led placemaking event that will help residents and small business get creative with a community space. Additionally, we hope to test some ideas and get feedback that will be incorporated into the vision for West Walnut Street. 

Together with you, The Better Block Foundation, and The City of Garland are working to bring your ideas to life and make a more vibrant place to live, work, and gather as a community. Please reach out with any questions to Marissa Lopez at marissa@betterblock.org
