TNP to sponsor free event Saturday
Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership is having a “Better Block on Pine” event from 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday.
The free family-friendly event is designed to showcase the potential redevelopment of the block of Pine Avenue between Market and Franklin streets.
It will feature temporary streetscape improvements including temporarily recreating the block as a plaza space closed to through traffic complete with pop-up retail shops, restaurants and recreational activities.
It will include a bike-safety demonstration and helmet giveaway, and two children’s bicycles will be raffled at the event, which will feature ongoing live music.
Public comment will be collected and used to create a series of recommendations for future use of the Pine Avenue block.
“We wanted to showcase a block that has some stable retail and recreational activity already, but could have more,” said Lisa Ramsey, the TNP’s deputy director.
TNP is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to empower residents and promote sustainable community development through projects and programs that increase the quality of life in Warren’s neighborhoods.
