City Council Poised to Approve Four Parklets

The Los Angeles City Council has directed the Departments of Transportation, Public Works, and City Planning to assist community groups with the installation of four pilot parklets. Over the past year, community groups in Highland Park, Downtown Los Angeles, and El Sereno have been developing plans for improving the public realm, design elements such as parklets as a centerpiece of their plans. Parklets are small areas for seating and planting that extend the sidewalk into on-street metered parking spaces.

The four pilot parklets – one on York Boulevard in Highland Park, two on Spring Street in Downtown Los Angeles, and another on Huntington Drive in El Sereno, will be the first of their kind in the City of Los Angeles, and will inform the development of a citywide program to facilitate communities across Los Angeles with implementing similar projects.
