Hi everyone, I just wanted to offer an update.
If you've been on Bartlett recently, there is a construction project which began on the block a few months back which will continue for 18 months. This construction site has caused a bit of a delay in the execution of this idea. We're currently working on creative solutions for how to implement this idea so that it doesn't get ruined or removed as a result of the construction.
Thanks everyone for your support, and please bear with us as we work around these unexpected issues!
Meli (and everyone),
Thanks! What great news. I'm thrilled that this idea has gotten such community support. Mission Community Market already has some volunteers who are committed to the cause, and bringing in other community members would be great as well.
Thanks again for all the support. This grant will really help with the transformation of Bartlett Street into a thriving community center. Yay!
Thanks for the support for this idea, Laura! Many neighbors and locals have commented that the market has done a lot to improve the block, but the market only happens once a week and we want the block to get a permanent makeover so it's a welcoming place to hang out all the time.
Check out the Mission Community Market, Thursdays at Bartlett Street and 22nd, 4pm til 8pm! For more info check out: missioncommunitymarket.org/
