Onstreet parklets spread in CA's Bay Area, bring public space, bike
parking to business districts:
These are intended to be permanent installations replacing curbside
car parking, extensions of the sidewalk with seating, art, and bike
parking. They are sponsored by adjacent merchants but are open to
anyone's use, not just customers of the particular business.
San Francisco is planning dozens, and Oakland's program has just begun.
Good news for cities, their residents, and their economies! Convivial
streets, streets for real life--what a concept!
