Bringing A Better Block to Downtown Marion on August 15th, 2019

By July 31, 2019News

Join us on Thursday, August 15th, for a fun night at the final 3rd Thursday of the season, the Farmer’s Market, and the A Better Block event!

Downtown Marion has partnered with Marion Public Health, Marion Regional Planning, and MarionMade to bring A Better Block to you!

Activities will be going on all over Downtown Marion during this event! This will be going on during 3rd Thursdays and the Marion Ohio Market Farmers Market!

The Better Block is a movement to temporarily demonstrate community projects. This provides an opportunity for us to re-imagine what our streets and spaces could look like, in a relatively low-risk, low-cost manner. Temporary demonstration projects can highlight proposed revitalization projects that create a more walkable, bikeable, and liveable community. Short-term demonstration projects, like the Better Blocks help gain momentum, spur conversation and help to influence long term community change. Please join us on August 15th to re-imagine what our downtown spaces can look like!

Activities will be going on all over Downtown Marion during this event! The Guild in Marion, OH will be doing chalk art with a small additional art gallery.

Stop by for a fun night at the final 3rd Thursday of the season, the Farmer’s Market, and the A Better Block event!
