There's a new energy around temporary street spaces that is sprouting up in cities. The goal of these kits is to help anyone get them off the ground as quickly as possible.
Building a community parklet, like those that now line the sidewalks of cities across the country, usually means dealing with a lot of red tape. LA’s new People St program is making that easier with a DIY kit of parts for designing parklets, plazas, and bike corrals. Any group approved through the program can use the kit to quickly add new community space to a neighborhood.
