Cleveland Clears the Way for its First Parklet
"The parklet revolution is coming to Cleveland," reports Steven Litt.
"In its quest to make downtown more pedestrian-friendly and to provide a new perch for people-watching, the nonprofit Historic Gateway Neighborhood Corp. has designed a plug-in outdoor living room to be installed in a parking space in front of the popular Noodlecat restaurant at 234 Euclid Ave."
The city's first parklet received approval earlier in June, with installation expected to take three weeks.
Litt also reports more of the design work and community support that went into the creation of the parklet, along with an explanation of the origins of parklets (first in San Francisco but now in many other cities around the country) built with planning approval.
