This week we went to Frenchtown to check out the Better Block Party. The Better Block Party is an weekend event where city planners and locals come together to create a space to represent what the area would look like if vendors and local businesses inhabited the area. The Better Block Initiative is intended to help develop particular areas around town and give the community an idea of what it could look like.
During our time at the Better Block Party, we had the opportunity to interview several people in the area about Frenchtown and how they feel like the area could be improved. We also had the opportunity to talk to local vendors and business owners that originated in the Frenchtown area.
We also had the chance to bring out our creative side by working on a collaborative community mural!
We look forward to seeing the new developments coming to the Frenchtown area!
