On Saturday, March 10, 2018 from 1-5 PM, the 1200 block of Hay Street will be transformed into a place for everybody. Narrow traffic lanes, wide sidewalks, bike lanes, plazas, music, art, and food will highlight this wonderful event.
The Build A Better Block project demonstrates how a place could look if it was more bicycle and pedestrian friendly. We will take a couple of blocks and recreate the area for one day by narrowing the traffic lanes, widening the sidewalks and adding bike lanes, crosswalks, benches, a plaza and more. There will be music, art, and other activities as well. The event will showcase the potential of the Haymount Area hoping to make this demonstration project into a long term solution. Last fall, the Longleaf Pine REALTORS was awarded a grant for this project and its the first project of this kind for the area. With permits and insurance acquired and an event date of March 10th set, we want you to show your support by volunteering or spreading the word. Help us make a difference in the Fayetteville and Haymount Community.
