It seems over the past few weeks, there has been a lot of firsts happening in Sydney! We covered Sydney's first Complete Streets program a few weeks ago and now, finally, the Better Block initiative has hit Sydney.
On Sunday 27 October 2013 a group of passionate locals made Clovelly greener, safer and more human. Inspired by Jason Roberts (founder of Better Block), and his latest visit to Australia, the local Clovelly Road Better Block temporarily changed the street by adding trees, tables, chairs, art, and music. Driven by local champion Phil Stubbs, this initiative encouraged the community to re-imagine the street the way they would want it.
Here is a short video from the day >
