Jason Roberts of the Better Block Project teaches us to rethink our neighbourhoods and pilot cheap, creative fixes. Register now to receive updates about the event.

The Planning Design Centre and the Halifax Cycling Coalition are pleased to bring Jason Roberts to Halifax for Winter Bike Week.  Jason founded the Better Block Project, which encouraged Dallasites to improve their neighbourhoods with simple interventions.

Jason is an IT Specialist with 15 years of experience in programming, website development, and network infrastructure planning. Jason formed a passion for transportation and urban development after a visit to Europe. In 2006, he formed the Oak Cliff Transit Authority, a non-profit organization, and developed their marketing and web presence, which lead to the city of Dallas being awarded a federal stimulus grant to reintroduce a streetcar system into the city by 2013. Jason recently spearheaded the “Better Block Project”, where he organized teams of advocates to revive blighted, vacant blocks of pre-war buildings into livable, sustainable developments complete with temporary businesses, landscaping, bike lanes, and outdoor cafe seating.
