More parking spots to be converted to parklets under newly issued proposal 

After a successful year of issuing 15 permits to build temporary common areas over parking spots in San Francisco, The City is issuing a second round of proposals.

The San Francisco Department of Public Works is asking business owners and residents to submit an application to turn more vehicle spaces into benches and seats for pedestrians in the spaces often referred to as parklets.

The permits have stirred some debate because of the loss of parking spaces. Often times the support outweighs the potential loss.

The City paid to construct the first six parklets, but are asking applicants to cover the cost for the new ones.
