Gavin Unveils the First Parklet in Sidewalk Reclaiming Campaign

New, 24 comments

The "block by block" conversion of San Francisco street space into mini-parks got a major ribbon-cutting today with Gavin on hand to unveil Mojo Bicycle Cafe's parklet in NoPa. It's got kind of a populist ring to it, doesn't it: "We're taking the 25 percent of the city's landmass that are streets and taking that back." And district supe Ross Mirkarimi was pretty juiced too: "I've always said Divis will be one of our comeback kid corridors."
