People Spots are temporary platforms adjacent to sidewalks, typically within existing parking lanes. By expanding the sidewalks, they create seasonal space for outdoor seating and dining. As a placemaking tool, they also contribute to an increase of pedestrian volumes and help promote economic development in retail corridors.
The following are potential People Spots pilot locations:
- N. Lincoln Ave. between N. Southport and N. Lakewood Ave. - Sponsored by SSA #27/Lakeview Chamber of Commerce
