Making Dallas Even Better

What the Heck Is a “Better Block”?

In my recap of the Blues, Bandits & BBQ gig in Oak Cliff, I mentioned the Better Block project, which shows how a street can be transformed by applying some simple urban design concepts. But you want specifics and pictures, don’t you? Jason Roberts breaks it down for you.

    Shouldn’t this post be accompanied with a picture of Jason Roberts on a bicycle?

    The guys that organize the Deep Ellum Outdoor Market are big proponents of this effort. This Saturday’s market should be fun and I hope they help get some people back down there. We need to keep the cool parts of our city alive and revitalize the old ones that have seen their better days.

    Has anyone thought of “better blocking” Lemmon Avenue between Love Field and Turtle Creek?
