3HC, the Junior Board for the Better Housing Coalition, has selected the triangular plot of land on Jefferson Avenue (bounded by Jefferson Ave., E. Clay St., and N. 23rd St.) as the site for a pocket park design competition.

What is a pocket park? And why did 3HC select this site? Come learn about this and more during a community meeting this Wednesday, August 13th at 6:30 PM at Union Market (2306 Jefferson Avenue).

In the spirit of community-based design, 3HC will be seeking input at this meeting on how the intersection of Jefferson Avenue and 23rd Street can be re-imagined as a better space for area residents.

If you’re unable to attend Wednesday’s meeting, take a moment to fill out a 2 minute survey. The survey results will elicit guidelines for the pocket park design competition.

Keep up-to-date on the progress of the park at Contact for more information or with questions.
