PARK(ing) Space

BY ERIKA MASHIG
IN NEW WESTMINSTER

In her talk, Erika Mashig explains how the original “parklet” stood in place in a parking stall in San Fransisco for two hours – the maximum term of the lease offered on the meter. When the meter expired, the sod, bench and tree were taken away and the space resumed as a parking stall. She goes on to explain how this grass roots initiative has caught on, and evolved into what is known as a “parklet”- the transformation of parking spaces on the street into places for people to sit, relax, and enjoy the city.
