Pavement to Parks Reaches the East Bay

The City of Oakland is well on its way to creating its first Pavement to Parks pilot project.  The City is collaborating with Rebar Art & Design Studio to repurpose Latham Square at the intersection of Telegraph Avenue and Broadway in the heart of Downtown Oakland.

See documentation of the planning and community engagement here:  http://www2.oaklandnet.com/Government/o/PWA/o/EC/s/BicycleandPedestrianProgram/LSPP/index.htm

It is tremendously exciting to see Oakland leading the East Bay into this movement that has been so successful in adding brilliantly conceived, artfully executed and well used public space to San Francisco, New York, Chicago and other leading cities.
