First and foremost, we want to thank all those that joined us for the Pocket Parks Launch 2010 (Meet + Greet) on Wednesday night!  It is motivating to see so much persistant enthusiasm from the community.

Archeworks had the opportunity to present a recap of the work that has been going on, in various lots in Little Village.  With the help of Enlace, willing community members, and some good food (especially the Flan), we were able to get some great dialogue started last night, which we hope to continue on a regular basis.  Some of the people we were able to connect with were school teachers, students, non-profit organizations, and concerned residents of Little Village.  We received some great feedback and it is apparent that people really want to see transformations within their community.  Among others, some ideas that were thrown around included:  movies in the lots, farmers market, sports field, clean-up days, adopting a park, displaying artwork, women’s clubs, and so much more….Check out some pictures from the evening!

Archeworks is excited to continue working with Little Village in transforming these underutilitized areas into something that can really become an asset to the community.  We look forward to our next LV event on February 13th….Fence Love.

In the meantime, be on the lookout for more +space!
