ComuniHACK

1379337_660300460669026_1442412667_nLet’s Hack the town! Yup, that’s what this initiative is all about: Citizens coming together to hack communities and engage them in the process of planning its improvement. You see, nobody knows better what a community needs than the community itself. Through Communihack, college students and other professionals work together with the residents to establish integrative designs that will help improve the quality of life in the area by establishing a working, coherent, development plan that will beautify the town as well as maximize the use of space to increase self-sustainability. And that’s just phase one. After that, phase two intends to actually do the proposed plans, leaving run-down communities like Santurce looking like they used to or better. The plan intends to target a different community every year or so, until hopefully, Puerto Rico gets completely hacked. Just imagine…

Although still in developmental stages, ComuniHack is already lining up community members, volunteers, and non-profit organizations like The Boys and Girls Club in order to make this dream a reality. As soon as August of 2014 a rough draft of the first ComuniHACK (Santurce) will be around.

If you’d like to know more, here’s a link to their proposal and their Facebook like page.
