What is the Coventry Living Room Project?

The Coventry Living Room Project aims to create a public gathering space that strengthens the sense of community in the Coventry neighborhood. 

We plan to take inspiration from parklets, pedestrian plazas, and other examples of community-building infrastructure in our and other cities. Throughout the process, we’ll design the space with those who live, work, and play in Coventry. This is a community-led project sponsored by the Coventry Village Special Improvement District.

How do I get involved?

Attend our community design session at the Coventry Branch of Heights Libraries on November 17th at 6:30 PM.

RSVP for the session here!
