International PARK(ing) Day
September 16, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
PARK(ing) Day is an international event that tasks individuals and organizations to reuse a metered street parking space for something other than its intended use to spark a conversation about how public space is designed and allocated. This year, Georgia Tech is partnering with the Midtown Alliance and other local organizations to transform 26 parking spaces into activated public spaces along 5th Street in Tech Square. The event will take place on Friday, September 16 from 11:00am to 3:00pm and will feature various booths from the King of Pops to food vendors. Bicycle parking will be provided.
The Student Planning Association at Georgia Tech is seeking organizations or groups to help transform the parking spaces into temporary public spaces. Any firms or organizations interested in participating should email Joshua Haston. Tech Square is accessible via the 10th Street MARTA Station and boarding the Tech Trolley to Tech Square.
