Are you PARK(ing) on September 15?

A Call to Inaction

Friday September 17th is International PARK(ing) Day.

Traverse City residents are ready to take part and we have plenty of downtown parking. (The waters were tested back in August). Due to scheduling conflicts, it’s proposed that TC hold a PARK(ing) event two-days before the world, on Wednesday September 15th.

Hump Day needs more activity anyway.

Interested? Can you Take Back Your Time somewhere 10am-2pm on September 15th?

If you are, leave a comment or send me an email. This will largely be self organized, but MyWHaT can offer coordination. A few ideas have already been generated, but I’m personally interested in what many of you can come up with.

What is PARK(ing) Day?

The following is from the creators’ DIY planning network website:

“PARK(ing) Day is an annual worldwide event that inspires city dwellers everywhere to transform metered parking spots into temporary public parks for the public good.”

Fair enough…now, what does can it look like?
