A collaboration of the College Hill Neighborhood Association, the City of Greensboro and Team Better Block “College Hill for Everyone” brought new livability options to College Hill neighborhood and expanded tools for other parts of town.
College Hill for Everyone combined traffic calming, signage, branding and community events to strengthe the identity of the neighborhood.
The neighborhood is culminating around the idea of College Hill for Everyon and is gaining attention as the fun place to live The parklet is now a destination place. College students have given it a hashtag and use it to meet-up, grade school children wait for the bus in it and neighbors drop in for a drink after work.
The project has encouraged other neighborhoods to take on initiatives with
alternative funding sources and methods.
