Partnering with Team Better Block in Haverhill has been an amazing experience. We can already see lasting impacts from the Haverhill Better Block event, which allowed us to engage vendors looking to do business more permanently in the city, and existing businesses working to keep outdoor dining for the remainder of the season. Most importantly, Team Better Block helped us engage local residents and entrepreneurs we had not yet been able to reach through our ongoing work with the City.

Team Better Block not only understands what cities need to be vibrant, inclusive communities but they also get small town America where the challenges are different --- the expertise and tools that Team Better Block brought to VT was invaluable. They offered an experience to test change, sparking enthusiasm and momentum.

“The Better Block costs about as much as a public meeting and a set of renderings would have, but it did so much more for building momentum, understanding, and sheer enthusiasm for complete streets.”
Peer Chacko, Assistant Director, City of Dallas
“[Better Block is] a 21st-century version of what the Chicago World’s Fair did in 1893.”

“The Specialists (urban designers, planners, engineers) need to realize that the locals can and want to make place... and give them the power to do so. Team Better Block provided us with the tools, best practices and inspiration to make a positive influence on our city. Thank you!”
