Back from the dead
Like everyone most folks in the neighborhood, I was horrified to hear that another gang of Eastside developers had purchased a stretch of buildings near the lot with plans to convert beloved spaces like Bauhaus, Wall of Sound, Spine and Crown Books, and Mud Bay into more overpriced housing. I'm sure plenty of emails and facebook posts are circulating between different groups of people about how to approach this problem, but I've only been privy to one discussion. I'll share everything I learn and will cross-post if other sites start up to try and organize people.
No events are currently planned but let me know if you have an idea for something. With the weather changing and the academic year in full swing, I'll mainly be posting information about news and events that I think will interest readers of this site. Please get in touch if you would like to share something.
As an Associated Program with Shunpike, People's Parking Lot is now able to accept donations from the good people of the internet. Our events are all planned and executed by volunteers so every dollar counts. So if you're feeling generous and would like to put a few dollars toward next year's Park(ing) Day (for insurance, sod, supplies, etc.), it would be greatly appreciated!
