People Spots

People Spots

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.
