Public Plaza Complaint

You can report a public plaza that is poorly maintained or not open to the public during posted hours. Public plazas are open areas located on private property and are also known as "privately owned public spaces (POPS)” or “pocket parks.” All public plazas should contain a sign listing the hours that the space is open to the public. The sign should also list the plaza's features, such as the number of trees and the amount of seating.

Public plazas are open areas located on private property. These spaces are required to be open to the public and generally contain features such as trees, benches, water features, and other design elements. Some spaces are open to the public 24 hours while others have been approved to close at night. Public plazas may also contain open air cafes and kiosks that serve food.
