Not Too Late For Parking Day Projects

Still not too late to particpate in Parking Day, 2009.
The deadline for permits for metered parking was Sept 11th but it looks like no permits are needed for non metered spaces.

Friday, September 18, 2009 marks the return of PARK(ing) Day to Pittsburgh. PARK(ing) Day is an annual, one-day, international event in which artists, activists and citizens collaborate to temporarily transform parking spots into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public parks.

"Calling artists, activists, and citizens for this one-day global event!" Go Here to learn more and see examples of Pittsburgh PARK(ing) spaces from last year. Should you decide to use a Pittsburgh Parking Authority metered space, click here for a registration form.

PARK(ing) Day is a great chance to get Pittsburghers thinking about how they use public space. It is also a great opportunity to generate more awareness about your organization by showcasing your mission, activities and values to people on the street!

The Community Design Center of Pittsburgh is partnering with the Mattress Factory and the Office of Public Art to promote Pittsburgh’s Second Annual PARK(ing) Day. Please contact CDCP’s Andrea Lavin or the Mattress Factory’s Emily Craig with any questions.

The Office of Public Art is a partnership between the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council and the City of Pittsburgh funded by The Heinz Endowments. For more information visit us at

This is Legal!

Here's the park the mayor and a few city council members put together last year.
