Lincoln Knolls Plaza Comes Alive for Better Block Event

Monday, August 7, 2017

On Saturday, August 5, the Lincoln Knolls Plaza came alive with vendors, a farmers market, kids activities, music, dance performances, an art gallery, and haircuts for kids.  The event, called the East Side Better Block, sought to draw positive attention to the plaza, which has a number of vacant spaces, particularly since departure of the IGA grocery store.  The Better Block events highlight what underutilized spaces could be like with more businesses and activities.  The goal of the event is to catalyze more permanent improvements in the future.  The East Side Better Block was sponsored by the Lincoln Knolls Community Watch, YNDC, the Northeast Homeowners, and 2nd Ward Councilman TJ Rogers.
