ABOUT THE EVENT /

Better Block Fay NC is a demonstration project to recreate an area for half a day to show what it could look like if it was more bicycle and pedestrian friendly and a place where people want to be. By reducing  traffic lanes to create a barrier between automobiles and pedestrians, and adding bike lanes, crosswalks, benches, and greenery, we can create a place that everybody can use and enjoy; and the better block project does it in a fun and entertaining way with music, art, food, and more.

 

The purpose of the project is to revitalize the area. Essentially we are testing future ideas for increasing safety, making the area more bicycle and pedestrian-friendly, bringing together the community, and boosting the economy. The demand to be able to safely walk and bike in the area is rising but Fayetteville’s current walkability ranking of last out of all major cities isn’t, which makes it the perfect location for this type of project.

 

With Fayetteville being such an active and engaged community with so much potential all we need to do is find a way to showcase that potential then we could make some great things happen here. And that’s exactly what we set out to achieve with Better Block Fay NC.
