POCATELLO — Pocatellans are being asked to reimagine a space many of us use every day. Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. is the Gate City’s first ever PARK(ing) Day. The effort will feature groups reinventing parking spaces as parklets in front of their establishments and during that time, residents can 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 for the city of Pocatello. “Using parklets, we can reimagine the possibilities of the urban landscape in Pocatello.”

Organizations and businesses set 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.
