The Tyler Street Transformation project (more info) is fast approaching and we need your help! We are coordinating efforts to have Realtor volunteers beautifying and cleaning up the area, and then creating our own real estate hub pop-up for the day of the event on August 26th. Join other volunteers in 2 hour shifts, or help by sharing the event on your social media accounts. To get started, there are 10 opportunities to join a group during Build Week to help clean up the area, add murals, storefront improvements and wayfinding. There are many openings for the August 26th popup Real Estate Hub. Email Sandy Carroll and/or signup for the Discover Pittsfield Facebook Events . Meet on Tyler St. between Smith St. and Courtland St. for beautification efforts and speak to Sandy for the Real Estate hub location on August 26th.

The Pittsfield Better Block makes better neighbors
…a better local economy
…more local business
…more time outdoors
…more beauty, more life
