How to Build a Parklet or Streatery

If  you’re interested in building a parklet or streatery, you’re in luck! We’ve developed three new documents that explain everything you need to know to get your project rolling:

Parklet Handbook 
The Parklet Handbook is the starting place for any parklet or streatery project. The handbook details the application process as well as all requirements for designing, permitting, building, and maintaining your parklet. It also includes expected timelines for each phase of the project and estimated costs. You’ll also find tips for assembling a team and funding your parklet.

Streatery Supplement 
Because streateries are a new program—and because a streatery operates differently than a parklet—they are subject to a few additional requirements. The Streatery Supplement is a companion to the Parklet Handbook that outlines different or additional requirements and explains what you’ll need to consider when planning your streatery.

Forms & Examples Supplement
This supplement to the Parklet Handbook provides all the forms you’ll need to complete during the parklet and streatery process. Here, you’ll also find examples of previously-submitted parklet applications, concept designs, and construction documents.

If you’ve read through these documents and are ready to start an application, you should check with us to see when the next application window will open. The first 2015 window is open now (as of February 23, 2015) and closes on Friday, March 20, 2015 at 5:00 p.m.

Announcements about future application windows will be posted to the home page and SDOT Blog, or contact us to be added to our email list. Please also contact us if you have questions that are not answered in the Parklet Handbook or its supplements. We’re here to help!
