PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

KENT BETTER BLOCK

The Kent Better Block event was held on September 29, 2018 and provided an opportunity for residents, businesses, and the community to temporarily reimagine N. Water Street (the Mill District) and demonstrate short term solutions to address walkability and pedestrian safety issues as well as provide a focus on the economic potential of the area. This event featured interactive and creative outdoor activities, as well as pop up markets supporting local entrepreneurs. Residents and visitors were encouraged to experience the unique history and culture of the Mill District and imagine opportunities for the future! A photo gallery of the event can be found HERE.  

During the event, residents, businesses, and visitors submitted almost 40 comments for feedback and consideration. To read the comments, please click HERE.
