Event description

Description

From November 17-18, the Five Points Plaza will be temporarily transformed by West Side community members alongside urban designers. Participants will be invited to brainstorm, build, stage, and program the Five Points Plaza for the two-day Better Block Project.

Better Block is a community-led approach to test ideas for creating great spaces. This temporary transformation will ultimately shape the final design for the City’s Capital Improvement Project for the intersection of West Trade, State Street, 5th Street and Beatties Ford Road (also known as Five Points).

FIVE POINT BETTER BLOCK PROJECT

Friday 5:00pm – 10:00pm | We Build the Space (Neighbors + Designers)

Saturday 10:00am – 3:00pm | We Enjoy the Space (Eat, Shop, Art, Entertainment)
