Advance Notice for March 30

Parklet and Streatery Application Deadline

Live or own a business in a dense neighborhood? Looking to open up a little space? Try applying for a parklet or a streatery.

A parklet takes a few on-street parking spots and opens them to the public in potentially fun and functional ways. Think a few tables, a little greenery, a ping pong table. Why not?
And the city's parklet program has been expanded to include "streateries," giving restaurants the opportunity  have outdoor table service in the place of parked cars.

The deadline to fill out an application has been extended to Monday, Mar 30.
