Improving your town or city doesn’t have to be a daunting task that’s left to experts. There are small, simple changes that everyone can make to create dramatic ripple effects throughout the city.

Better Block Project founder Jason Roberts isn’t so much a city planner as a city “doer.” He’ll discuss his innovative approach to building communities by installing temporary pop-up improvements to help people visualize a better block for the future — and shift plans into tangible results. A resident of the Dallas area, Roberts has been featured in the New York Times, Dwell, Ted Talks and National Public Radio.

Cost is $10 per person, if you would like to enjoy lunch.  There is no fee to attend if you choose to forgo lunch.
