What do you think of the parklets? Wanna keep them?
Press release, City of Sebastopol, May 17, 2021
In an effort to better serve the community during the pandemic, Sebastopol applied for and received permission from Caltrans (which is responsible for Highways 12 and 116) for the temporary installation of several parklets (outdoor seating areas adjacent to the sidewalks in the parking lane of the street) in the downtown area.
Parklets are considered public spaces and are not reserved for patrons of adjacent businesses. Businesses commit to keeping the parklets in front of or near their establishments clean, but the parklets may be used by anyone.
We would like to hear from community members about whether or not they would like the parklets to continue.
Survey results will be shared with the city council to help inform their decision-making process about the future of parklets in Downtown Sebastopol.
The survey closes on May 28.
