Parklets!?

13 Jul

In the current economy there are vacant lots throughout the city waiting exclusively for a developer to come along and plop another building on them. However, in reading an old NYT article it’s clear that such pieces of property are ripe for alternative uses!

One such solution put forth is the idea of a ‘parklet’ or small neighborhood park. In the case of Edgewater, even with the shore so close we could definitely use a dog park or playground along Sheridan Road! Alternatively we could turn the area near Foster into a community garden area! The possibilities are  limitless! I know this may sound crazy but why not? Even if it is just temporary.
