There are only a few days left to submit an entry to the Jefferson Pocket Park Design Competition. The window for all submissions closes this Friday October 17, 2014 at 5:00 PM.

All submissions will be considered by a local jury with the winner receiving a $500.00 cash prize. The five finalists will be invited to present their designs to a panel of judges and the public on Thursday, October 30th, at 6:30 PM at the Family Resource Center (2405 Jefferson Ave.).

Each finalist’s score will factor in scores from the judges and votes from members of the public attending the event, so come let your voice be heard.

The Jefferson Pocket Park competition aims to beautify and transform the Jefferson Avenue corridor into a cherished, environmentally friendly community space focusing on the triangular plot of land at 2221 Jefferson Avenue in Richmond. Better Housing Coalition (BHC) and BHC’s junior board have collaborated with Storefront for Community Design, Friends of Jefferson Park, and the Enrichmond Foundation to support the competition and development of the pocket park.

See for entry guidelines and additional information including the judging/scoring process, which was just added on 10/13/2014.

The goal is to submit a final design to appropriate City departments by Spring 2015 with fundraising to take place soon after, with installation to occur sometime in 2016.
