But Morristown does not make decisions in a vacuum.
Parklets are installations of public seating, art, plants and other elements in the street along the curb, protected from traffic, in areas generally reserved for parking. They are places to gather, to eat and drink, to celebrate and create, to work, to play, and to build community.
Morristown has been working with its planners to develop a Master Plan that advances the resident-driven vision of Morristown as the most green, livable and sustainable town in New Jersey.
The Town of Morristown, Sustainable Morristown, Morris Arts and Together North Jersey will host this walk-in session at the storefront at 18 N Park Place from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. But before heading down for some refreshments and a demo of the parklet itself, organizers are asking for residents to complete a parklet survey .
Parklets are considered by organizers as away to support pedestrian activity, facilitate incorporation of public space and the arts into the downtown, while helping to promote local business activity.
