DES MOINES, Iowa -- A streetscape redevelopment project is already in the works for the 6th Avenue Corridor but neighborhood leaders they still need help improving the area.
Once a month from August until November, the 6th Avenue Corridor Association hosts a multi-cultural market. The market supports small business owners, vendors and local performers.
Right now, the neighborhood is in competition for a $10,000 healthy community grant to help revitalize the area. The grant would allow the market to run on a bi-weekly or weekly schedule throughout the majority of year. The association's executive director says a positive place to gather is what the neighborhood needs.
“We certainly want to focus on our strongest asset of this area which is diversity and really create a regular event where people can come together, get to know one another in the community and support small businesses,” said Breann Bye.
Public voting is a part of the selection process.
