Rock the Block is a neighborhood revitalization event that focuses on helping residents with repair and beautification projects to build pride and connect neighbors. Based off similar successful programs done in Omaha and Des Moines, Rock the Block was started in Council Bluffs in 2020 in partnership between The 712 Initiative and Habitat for Humanity of Council Bluffs.
This year, the event will be held in the Edison Elementary School neighborhood on September 17th. The Rock the Block team will provide guidance and supplies. This is a great time to connect with neighbors while making an investment in your neighborhood
