Better Block PDX was chosen among 5 finalists to present at the Hatch Soup IV micro-grant fundraiser on August 30th. Better Block PDX will pitch an outdoor seating “Parklet Kit” used by communities during temporary roadway and plaza installations.
Tickets are available at HatchOregon.org. You may know Hatch (formerly Springboard Innovation) as the organization responsible with passing this years Community Public Offering Law, a type of crowd-funding for small business.
Better Block PDX creates street re-imagination pilot projects that re-purpose the public right of way to include people as part of the engineering equation. Experiencing the city in attractive, engaging new ways has prompted momentum for urban livability improvements from city and community stakeholders.
