In 2014, SDCC will be bringing a lot of people together to re-imagine part of our beloved neighborhood for a unique large-scale street event called The Better Block Project.

betterblock1Using very little money, zero permanent infrastructure and lots of community support we will demonstrate what is possible in our neighborhood, with the goal of creating lasting change. If this sounds like fun or if you want to learn more, please get in touch with us! We would love to include your vision and creativity in the event. Contact Liz at (314) 862-5122 or sdcc@skinker-debaliviere.com.
