A thread of #parklets examples. What good examples do you have? What features? Materials? Planting mixes? Local sourcing & fabrication examples? Community led examples? Tactical urbanism examples? Budget?
Parklet are often in the carriageway, this one highlights the point that kerbside space doesn't just have to be for parking. @MelissaCEdwards
DIY options are available, no great expense needed, need to support everyone feeling they can do this though. Agency and sense of power over decisions matters. @BrooklynSpoke

"People said #Copenhagen was too far north for sidewalk cafés. They said “we’re not the Italians.” Now there are 7,000+ outdoor seats downtown." — Jan Gehl, @citiesforpeople. #StickyStreets #StreetsForPeople
One of my most important conversations ever was an early 1 with my friend Jan Gehl, who noted how we can double the # of people in a place by doubling the # who come, OR by doubling how long they stay. The latter is MUCH easier. A formative observation for my #StickyStreets work.
One of the easiest ways to make more #StickyStreets for people is by transforming street parking spaces into small people places, like #parklets, “#streateries” etc. On this #ParkingDay, don’t just admire these — commit to do MORE of them in your city, FASTER. #ParkingDay2018
