Well, this is embarrassing. Something went wrong when posting your comment. Care to try again?

    We were able to save an alley that the city did not want and planned to give to adjacent property owners. This happens several times a year but we saw potential for pedestrian use and stopped it. Now we need a few hours of volunteer work to keep it clean and an artist or graphic designer to help on design and planning for a grant application for permanent improvements. http://www.bartlettpark.net/2012/01/planning-cleanup.html

      Hi Tom, that's amazing. Who did you get involved to save the alley? That's a great way to start and invest in your own community. When neighbors see that someone else cares it compels them to join in and support. I think you should share this as a LEARN post to drive visibility to your project. You may get some creative ideas on design and planning.
