    Event Description:
    Montgomery Parks invites you to join us on November 16, for the next session of the Parks Speaker Series featuring founder and CEO the Better Block FoundationJason Roberts.
    Jason Roberts’ session entitled “Building A Better Block” will share insights on how to revitalize neighborhoods as walkable, vibrant community centers.  He and his team travel to cities around the country and abroad and work with citizens, area artists and businesses to reimagine where they live, work and play. 
    The session will also examine the recent work that the Better Block Foundation did right here in our area.   In October, members of the Randolph Hills Civic Association worked with the Montgomery County Parks & Planning Departments and The Better Block Foundation team to turn the Randolph Hills Shopping Center Parking lot into a community gathering place for two days.   You can learn more about the project and see the incredible transformation in this video.
