  • May 11-13, 2017 Better Block-Shelby Park will transform the 1200 block of S. Logan Street and the 500 block of E. Oak Street in Shelby Park. A community design workshop in March created a series of conceptual site plans and led to a final site design for both physical improvements and community programming. Better Block will create a three day festival atmosphere while allowing residents and visitors to experience a renewed corridor. Planned physical changes include new green spaces, street trees, amenities such as benches and outdoor café seating, an outdoor community stage, and expanded pedestrian space while planned programming includes live music, food, live painting, community yoga, kids activities, and more -including Cyclouvia on Saturday, May 13 from 2:00-6:00 p.m. Entertainment on Friday, May 13 will be provided by Woodrow on the Radio and Johnny Berry and the Outliers, with Squeezebot performing Saturday, May 13. Better Block is an initiative started by Jason Roberts out of Dallas, Texas. Better Block seeks to quickly, affordably, and temporarily change a single block along a neighborhood corridor to test out ideas for redesigned roadways, public spaces, businesses and community events – all designed and implemented by the community itself.
