Better Block Milpitas: May 29 and 30

Join us as we celebrate a reimagined Main Street in Milpitas, focused on vibrancy and connectedness. Based on local residents' feedback, we will be implementing a temporary, two-day installation along Main Street that will feature programming, such as art, music, games, pop-up shops, as well as people-focused spaces. Leading up to the Better Block event, we will be hosting volunteer workshops for the community to come out and be a part of transforming their neighborhood. During the Better Block event, we will be collecting community feedback that will then inform permanent changes based on the demonstration.


Kickoff Event

Where: City Hall, 455 East Calaveras Boulevard

When: February 26, 6 - 7 PM

Join us on February 26 as we host a public presentation to discuss Better Block's and the City of Milpitas' collaboration in creating a temporary two-day installation on Main Street. At the Kickoff, there will be an opportunity to share feedback, opinions, and ideas regarding interventions that should be made to the area through an online survey.  


We look forward to seeing you at the Kickoff!
