      Hi everyone,
      Here's an email sent out to our Feet First listserv about PARK(ing) Day
      2008. Apologies for cross-postings!


      *Do you like parks?
      Would you like more parks in your neighborhood?
      Join Feet First and others for PARK(ing) Day!*


      Help imagine and build a greener, more livable city by being a part of
      PARK(ing) Day on *September 19th 2008*.

      PARK(ing) day started in San Francisco with the artist collective REBAR.
      It's motivated by the realization that a metered parking space is a
      short-term lease of public land, and doesn't necessarily need to be used
      for storage of a personal vehicle.

      Instead, on PARK(ing) Day, parking spaces all over the world are
      transformed by organizations and neighbors into temporary public parks.
      Last year over 200 parks were created in fifty cities around the world,
      including Seattle.

      *IF YOU'D LIKE TO PARTICIPATE AND ARE PART OF AN ORGANIZATION:*
      Go to http://www.feetfirst.info/files/reclaiming-a-park-ing-space to
      read more and fill out this form:
      http://www.feetfirst.info/files/PARK%28ing%29%20Day%20Organization%20Sign-7-24-08.pdf.


      *IF YOU'D LIKE TO PARTICIPATE AND ARE AN INDIVIDUAL:*
      If you are an individual and want to take part, email
      ellie@... with your name, email, phone number, the
      neighborhood or location you would like your PARK(ing) spot to be in,
      and whether you can organize a space yourself or simply want to
      participate. We'll take it from there.

      *THEN COME TO THE FEET FIRST PARK(ing) DAY WORKSHOP!*
      Come to the Feet First PARK(ing) Day workshop on *August 13th* to learn
      more about creative ideas for your PARK(ing) spot, resources,
      permitting, and to nail down other specifics like location. Full details:

      PARK(ing) Day workshop
      August 13th
      6pm to 7:30 pm
      Triad Urban Center
      701 3rd Ave
      Seattle, WA 98104
      Questions: 206.652.2310


      *Background*
      The Trust for Public Lands has taken the project on nationally, and Feet
      First is working with TPL and the Parks Foundation to mobilize community
      organizations, businesses and residents to participate here in Seattle.
      Park(ing) Day is not only a great chance to support a greener and more
      livable city, it's a great chance to connect with your local community
      one curious onlooker at a time. A park(ing) spot park is a whole lot of
      fun and a true conversation starter, in the best meaning of those words.

      For pictures, more information, and more background, go to
      www.tpl/parkingday (esp. check out "videos and photos from past
      PARK(ing) day events), or to http://www.parkingday.org/
