Help bring your street to life!

Our streets should be vibrant and fun places to live and play. What keeps you from being active on your street?

The Better Blocks team is ready to visit your block party or community meeting to talk about what keeps you from biking and walking in your neighborhood.

We will show you how to address whatever is standing in your way, whether it is high traffic speeds, poor lighting or broken sidewalks.

Better Blocks is free! Contact us today to get started.

Better Blocks is generously funded by the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, the Kresge Foundation, the Michael Reese Health Trust, Bank of America and the Alliance for Biking and Walking.
