Time Lapse of Parklet Construction

U District Street Fair 2015

May 16-17, 2015

We launched our neighborhood's first parklet - a public park replacing a parking spot - just in time for last year's Street Fair. For the fourth year in a row, we talked with citizens and took their votes for public open space.

At this year's U District Street Fair, we had hundreds of people stop by to choose public space and vote on their preferred design of our future square. If you haven't voted yet, click here to vote online.

The results of the voting are as follows:

Option A

The Above Station Plaza Scheme: 98 votes - view

Option B

The Adjacent 'Ave' Plaza Scheme - 115 votes - view

Option C

The Center 'Ave' Plaza Scheme - 123 votes - view

Option D

Brooklyn to the 'Ave' Scheme - 85 votes - view
