Something new is coming to Cook County this summer, but it won’t be here for long. It’s a Pop-up Sidewalk!
Pop-ups can come in many forms and we’ve been seeing them pretty close to home. A pop-up is something temporary and allows trying something out to see if it works without making a large and permanent investment.
This summer Threads hosted a Pop-Up Shop at its Grand Marais store.
And in Duluth, the city and Healthy Duluth Area Coalition hosted a Pop-up Parklet.
The Pop-up Sidewalk will be creating a sidewalk connection between Artist’s Point and downtown Grand Marais, along Boulder Park. Right now, the sidewalk ends where Boulder Park starts.
This Pop-up will help us all experience what it would be like if a sidewalk was built there. Be sure to try out the sidewalk starting on August 15th, 2014.
