Operation Downtown Dine Out
EasyPark is launching Operation Downtown Dine Out to create dining al fresco for restaurants in downtown street parking spaces.
Parklets are commonly seen during the month of September temporarily transforming street parking spaces into temporary public places or “parklets.”
“We have long supported the idea of parklets coming to downtown Anchorage on a more permanent basis rather than once a year,” said Andrew Halcro, Executive Director for Anchorage Community Development Authority. “The need to provide outdoor restaurant seating in downtown’s urban environment has now taken on a greater sense of urgency.”
EasyPark will be offering up to three parking spaces for free to restaurants who would like to create an outdoor eating area for their customers.
To learn more about the program and get started with your reserved parking spaces, visit the EasyPark website.
