Hewn bakery, on 810 Dempster Street, is looking to open the first parklet in Evanston history. If the bakery receives enough funding, the parklet will be in action this year, replacing a 20 minute parking spot in front of the store. This will only happen if their Kickstarter campaign is successful. As of Monday morning, they have raised $4,346 of the $14,000 needed to make this vision a reality. The Kickstarter campaign is 5 days in, with 15 days remaining.
Below is Hewn’s video about their vision for the parklet:
