City asking for resident input on parklets for businesses in downtown Orlando

City officials are looking for feedback regarding a set of parklets that are designed to help local businesses.

According to a press release from the city’s Downtown Development Board, the city believes the parklets provide an opportunity for businesses to conduct safe operations as well as provide residents and visitors safe experiences while in downtown Orlando.

“Parklets allow downtown businesses to expand their retail sales and restaurant seating operations into adjacent on-street public parking spaces,” reads the release.

To gage whether the community feels similarly, the board is seeking feedback through a new survey. Take the parklet survey for a chance to receive a downtown swag bag.
