If you’re new to Better Block PDX, welcome! Were a public spaces advocacy group, inspired by a national nonprofit. Over the past 3 years we’ve been working with Portland State University students to create plans that help communities bring their pop-up placemaking projects to life. Through our collaborations with students and professors the PSU Project Pathway was formed, a program that integrates tactical urbanism into the academic curriculum.
