People's Parking Lot is proud to announce their intention to secure the lot for Park(ing) Day 2009. As you may have seen in years past, this is a full-day event where participants convert parking spots into small parks.

We hope to transform the lot into a Central Park for the entire event, though without disturbing the smaller, parking space-sized lots around the neighborhood. In the Central Park, the intention is to host parks for individual groups, nonprofit organizations, and especially artists/design firms interested in the temporary use of disused space. Additionally, it would be great to invite some neighborhood retailers to host parks: for example, maybe Spine and Crown could set up a bookworm park.
A proposal will be sent to the lot owners shortly and the organizing committee will begin planning shortly thereafter. The date of this year's event is September 18th, a Friday, so go ahead and ask for that day off now.
If you're interested in setting up a park, go ahead and send us an email now (contact info is n the upper right-hand corner) so we can gauge interest. If you have organizational ideas or want to take part in hosting the event, please get in touch as well.
