Streets Alive! Community Development Project Promotes Healthy Neighborhoods
Strong and healthy neighborhoods benefit EVERYONE. A mobile festival that moves to a new neighborhood every 2 years, Streets Alive! partners with community organizations, businesses, and individuals to support a community development project that promotes neighborhood health and vitality. The project benefits not only the host neighborhood but adds to the beauty, safety, and well-being of our entire city. This year's project in the Belmont Neighborhood supports an outdoor living and learning center to be shared by Belmont's community, senior, and recreation centers, preschool, elementary school and learning centers, neighborhood organizations, residents, and businesses.
