September 18th PARK(ing) Day
PARK(ing) Day is an annual global event where people collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into mini-parks.
This Friday September 18th, several temporary parklets will be created across Honolulu, including ones coordinated by HHF Planners, Paiko, Blue Planet Foundation, BEvolve and The Trust for Public Land (in partnership with KUPU, KUA, Mana Ai, Hui Ku Maoli Ola, Better Block Hawaii, 88 Block Walks, GreenerReader, and Interisland Terminal). Stay tuned for details!
To celebrate and collaborate on future parklets, Box Jelly will be hosting a pau hana from 6-8pm. Hear from Renee Espiau from the Dept of Planning & Permitting about what the City & County of Honolulu has planned for semi-permanent parklets with “Bill 59 Relating to Complete Streets”. Talk with folks who have been making public spaces on O’ahu. Peek at what’s happening here and worldwide. Get super charged for community-created public spaces!
