Analysis
This ordinance defines a “parklet” as a platform that is located in the parking lane of a street, is at the same level as the abutting sidewalk, and is intended to provide additional space and amenities for the adjacent business establishment and its patrons.
It also identifies the various permits that are required for installation of a parklet, including a permit for occupancy of the public way (fee of $200), and, if needed, a sidewalk area dining permit or an alcohol beverage license.

The ordinance also specifies other requirements for parklets, including:

a. A parklet may be installed in the public right-of-way only between March 15 and November 15.

b. The applicant shall pay the necessary fees, as determined by the commissioner of public works, for temporary removal of parking meters or hooding of meters.

c. A parklet shall not project more than 6 feet into a roadway, as measured from the outside edge of the curb, unless otherwise approved by the commissioner of public works.

d. A parklet may occupy only the portion of the roadway that is directly in front of the applicant’s property, building, or leased space or, in the case of a building with multiple first-floor occupants, in front of the applicant’s portion of the building frontage.
