The City of San Francisco is calling for parklet proposals for the first time in two years.
"Parklets repurpose part of the street next to the sidewalk into a public space for people," explains the Pavement to Parks website. "These small parks provide amenities like seating, planting, bicycle parking, and art. While they are funded and maintained by neighboring businesses, residents, and community organizations, they are publicly accessible and open to all."
Proposals will be accepted via Pavement to Parks through May 29. An open house and information session will be held Wednesday and Thursday from 6-7 p.m. at the SF LGBT Center.
Curbed reported that the process is open to all San Francisco residents and that owning a business is not a prerequisite for consideration.
