4. Park[ing] Day LA 2008 Block Party Overview This was the first-ever Park[ing] Day LA block party. Park[ing] Day is a national grassroots effort to highlight the need for more open space in our cities by transforming parking spots into small parks. Park[ing] Day started in San Francisco, CA and has spread nationwide. This is the second time Los Angeles has participated in the event. The American Institute of Architects Los Angeles Chapter (AIA/LA) started a blog and website to support Park[ing] Day, provided maps of the parking spots across the city, managed outreach for the day, and organized an post-event after party at the A+D Museum on Wilshire Boulevard. Monday, August 4, 2008 Ashley Zarella, LEED AP, Assoc. AIA (Director, Area-Wide Workforce, Private Sector) introduces Will Wright from the AIA/LA to the Parks, Recreation & Open Space Committee for a brief presentation on the event and encourage participation of the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council. Gunnar Hand, AICP (Director, Area-Wide Workforce, Public Sector) volunteer to take on a parking spot on the behalf of the Neighborhood Council. Henry Proctor (Director, Homeless) and Wendell Blessingame (Director, Social Services) also volunteered to get involved. Sunday, August 17, 2008 First planning meeting between Ashley, Gunnar and Henry meet to discuss the event, scope and walk around the Historic Core to determine a location. The event quickly balloons in concept from a single parking space to a parking lot and block party and we identify several parking lots along Main Street as potential sites. Friday, August 22, 2008 Permit for street closure initiated (although not issued befo re two weeks in advance of the event). Friday, August 29, 2008 Planning meeting at Gilmore & Associates to review status of the event permit, funding (proposed and needed), programming and materials needed, outreach and promotion. Thursday, September 4, 2008 Planning meeting with Gilmore & Associates, AIA/LA, DMJM Design, and the Historic Downtown Business Improvement District to review the event schedule and identify critical issues to be addressed. Thursday, September 11, 2008 Final planning meeting with Gilmore & Associates, Little Radio and the Historic Downtown Business Improvement District to review the event schedule and finalize details. Monday, September 16, 2008 LAPD approves the street closure. Tuesday, September 17, 2008 LAFD inspector walks the site with Gunnar Hand and gives his approval of the street closure. Friday, September 19, 2008 Event Day! Event photos are posted that evening on Flickr to facilitate event coverage. 5
