In 2010 the city of San Francisco began issuing RFP’s (request for proposals) for an innovative and ambitious plan. Under the Department of Public Works, Planning Department, Pavement to Parks, and others; the city enabled the conversion of parking spots to recreational spaces. While technically temporary, these new mini-parks are creating outdoor seating and green spaces as well as simultaneously discouraging driving. The projects are paid for by the adjacent businesses and mandated for public use.
