This morning the city workers were in downtown Urbana this am assembling the new “Curbanas” (parklets) in front of Crane Alley with the one in front of Cafeteria and Co to follow pronto. The temporary structures come in a kit and extend the sidewalk into the parking places–like two parking spots will be taken in each location.
So some questions:
- Will there be more of these next year?
- Are they big enough to actually seat four people at a table?
- Willl the loss of parking spots be no big deal for downtown Urbana?
- Will they come to downtown Champaign next–and what will we call them–Chamcurbs?
