Redding’s Successful Parklet May Help Bring Statewide Guidance

by Melanie Curry   Tuesday, December 15, 2015

Thank you everyone for all your hard work and contributions!
This parklet – your parklet –  was made possible by dozens of volunteers and a collaboration of many agencies, groups and businesses, including:

Caltrans District 2, City of Redding, Enjoy the Store, Cascade Properties, Ryan Russell Studio, Dignity Health, Mix 101, Aztec Construction, Sierra Pacific Scout & J.Miller Coffee, Carnegie’s, Tantardini’s, J&A Foods, Amarte, Dulceblomma, Foundry Square, In-Dwelling, Sierra Nevada, California Street Shop, Healthy Shasta, The Shasta Historical Society, Moseley Family Cellars, Carousel, Shameless O’Leery’s, View 202, Lucy Hair Enhancement, Red Arrow, Rader Excavating, Civic Auditorium, Catalyst Young Professionals, Op-Test.  And all the thousands of people and participants who came by and enjoyed the space.

This was a very successful project.  City of Redding is now designing standards and policies for local businesses to have living streets amenities of more permanent parklets and bike corrals- and now Caltrans HQ is working on policies that will help other cities in California!
