Livable Communities - Grand Avenue in Des Moines with AARP - Iowa

We're on site with Brad Anderson from AARP-Iowa and Layne Fergusen from Team Better Block as they and dozens of volunteers transform a block of Grand Avenue in the East Village of Des Moines. The goal is to show what can be done to encourage a redesign of auto-dominated roads and create a more livable community and a more vibrant commercial area. And, the economic development opportunities are astounding. You've heard Jason Roberts talk about Build a Better Block early this year. Here we dive deeper.  Listen in.
