Kent Better Block Party
The City of Kent is a new member of our timebank and is hosting the Mill District, North Water Street Better Block Party! There will be LOTS of opportunities to earn time credits helping the City of Kent from artistic chalk painters to handy duct tape artists to helping on the day of the event! We hope that you can help AND attend the event!
Here's the description:
We're here to celebrate history—to showcase potential and pursue revitalization—to build a Better Block right here in Kent!
Kent Better Block, presented by Huntington Bank and sponsored by The Mucha Family Fund, is a day-long event celebrating what this area is, and envisioning what we'd like to create for the future. It will be a moment for the whole City of Kent to celebrate this neighborhood's past and present and envision the bright future that lies ahead.
We want to temporarily demonstrate the potential North Water has to offer and what it could look like. The street will be filled with community members gathering around bump out seating, improved crosswalks, pop-up shops, murals, and added greenery while honoring the rich history of the street itself.
Pedestrians and cyclists are encouraged to explore the street, engage with businesses and activities, enjoy community spaces, and check out local artists. Come and bring your family to see what it's like to build a Better Block right here in Kent!
