The parklet on Minnesota Street is a perfect place to bring the community together. The parklet, designed as a project by CSB/SJU urban planning students and made with reclaimed materials, features seating for passers-by to linger, chat and partake in a coffee, pastry or cone from one of St. (Joseph’s)area businesses. It’s summer, and as we emerge from the pandemic, some may still prefer to mingle outdoors. The parklet is sparking connection, conversation and imagination. It certainly is delivering more to downtown St. (Joseph) than another parked SUV would. I appreciate the unique artistic addition and everyone involved in the project.
