Andersonville’s much talked about “People Spot” received it’s finishing touches last week, and the Andersonville Development Corporation wants to celebrate. The parklet, named “People Spot,” is a small urban park that was created by replacing three on-street parking spaces with public seating, plants and bike parking. It was installed mid-summer and just recently received a mural painted on the street-facing side by Chicago artist Ruben Aguirre and a bike rack. Overall the People Spot cost about $20,000 and was funded by SSA #22, the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce and private donations via a Kickstarter campaign. The people spot will be removed for the winter around December 1st and can be re-installed March 1st.
