Won’t the Parklets take much-needed parking spaces?

A:

No.

In most situations, the answer would be “Yes” – as a Parklet usually occupies a parallel parking space.  However, in the Playhouse District, our situation is very different.  Along with the traffic calming strategy of reducing Colorado from five lanes to three in District, we are also proposing a change from parallel parking to back-in angled parking. 

With the shift in space design, we’ll actually gain 4-5 parking spaces per block resulting in a total increase estimated at around 20-25 spaces!
