Mark your calenders for the Better Block Project in Oak Cliff on April 10 & 11th.
For two days only, neighborhood activists are exploring that concept by
shops—a plant/gift shop, a coffee shop, kids art studio—in an experiment that’s part art
installation, part political statement. This pre-war block with restrictive retail zoning and
high car traffic is converting to a people-friendly environment by adding businesses
most requested by locals and by reclaiming street space with outdoor seating, historic
lighting, and more. Both new and existing businesses are celebrating this prospect with
unique happenings at each location. The project is part of the greater Oak Cliff Art Crawl,
which is being held on April 10th and 11th, 2010, and organized by Go Oak Cliff,
a non-profit working to improve quality of life in North Oak Cliff.
