Bethel Better Block Event

The Better Block project will transform downtown Bethel... in a weekend! Help make our downtown safer, more attractive and more livable.

  • Better Block is a nationally-renowned process for revitalizing downtowns and blocks, starting with temporary changes and projects. 
  • Bethel was selected by AARP of Vermont to host a Better Block project in 2016 - receiving $15,000 in technical assistance and resources.
  • This summer, we'll work with Andrew Howard of Better Block, AARP and other partners to identify specific projects to test & try, like pop-up shops, temporary bike lanes and intersection improvements, benches and parklets, beautification projects and more.
