Tower Grove Neighborhoods CDC was awarded a grant to coordinate/implement this event with neighborhood participation. The objective of the event is to temporarily improve the block by showing alternative uses for under-utilized buildings, promoting walking and biking, and enhancing the streetscape.
This is a neighbor driven event and we are looking for more volunteers to help improve the block for the day. We would love for you to participate in some way, shape or form.
Please contact Dana Gray with any questions and about ways to help. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org and her phone number is 314 560 3472
