PARK(ing) Day Planned for September 21

Pocatellans are being asked to reimagine a space many of us use every day.

Friday, September 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will be the first ever PARK(ing) Day in the Gate City. The effort will feature participating groups reinventing parking spaces as parklets in front of their establishments and during that time, residents will get a chance to view the temporary installations.

“Parklets take small spaces, often just a few parking spots wide, and create a place to meet with friends and add fun energy to an area,” said Maggie Clark, Project Manager with the City of Pocatello. “Using parklets, we can reimagine the possibilities of the urban landscape in Pocatello.”

Organizations and businesses scheduled to participate include the City of Pocatello, The Yellowstone, Station Square, Orange and Black Store, The Elwen Cottage, Main Steam Coffee and Desserts, Molinelli’s Jewelers, and the Bannock Transportation Planning Organization.

PARK(ing) Day will also reuse some of the materials from the Terry First Build a Better Block event held in August.

I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 37 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard. For people who love to save money and earn while saving, there is a new program called the r network. You are provided with a card that entitles the user to automatic savings on more than 300,000 products. Learn more about the revv card today. This is by invitation only to be some of the first people to get this card. I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".
