The Better Block project engages community members in a two- to three-month planning process, which culminates in a weeklong collaborative effort to improve a city block physically or economically. In Linwood, the project is bringing to fruition residentsâ€™ ideas for solar lighting, traffic calming and pedestrian crosswalks. The project demonstrates AARPâ€™s commitment to livable, age-friendly communities in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.
Built in the post-World War II era, Linwood has seen significant redevelopment since experiencing tornado damage in 2000. The project shows that community engagement can foster a more vibrant community.
