23rd Avenue Action Plan
You Ready to Party?!
What better way to learn about our work than with a Central Area Block Party! On September 27 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., the corner of 23rd and Cherry will be transformed into a block party that is open and free to everyone. You won't want to miss out on a great time with your neighbors while enjoying live music, food trucks, art, and kid’s activities such as bouncy houses, face painting, and sidewalk chalk art.
Besides being a good time, this block party is an opportunity for the Central Area community to learn about and provide feedback on the 23rd Ave Action Plan and the urban design and rezone plans. You can meet our ACT members who helped shape these plans, and get the most current update on the 23rd Ave corridor improvement.
Visit the Central Area Block Party website to see who will be performing, what food trucks will be there, and more. You can also take a look at our Block Party poster and help spread the word about this fun event.
