Do you have a great idea to transform a parking spot into a vibrant public space?

You are here

The City of Ottawa will be accepting applications for their streetside spots pilot program October 5 – December 7, 2015. Streetside spots are small outdoor spaces created by temporarily re-purposing on-street parking from April 1 – Oct 31.  Streetside spots can take one of three forms:

  • Streetside parklet – a public space that may contain such elements as seating, shading, bike parking, or games table.
  • Streetside patio – a private space reserved for patrons of a café, restaurant, or bar that does not have an existing patio.
  • Streetside vending stall – an outdoor business space for the sale of merchandise. 

For more information, review the Submission Requirements and Standards, attend the information session at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, October 20 in the Richmond Room at Ottawa City Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West, or contact Andrea Flowers at 613-580-2424 ext. 16081.
