Open Streets Program

In an effort to support COVID-19 recovery for residents and businesses, the Long Beach City Council approved an Open Streets Program in May 2020 to temporarily transform public areas into safe spaces for physically-distanced activity.  Under City Council direction, the Open Streets program concluded in June 2022 with a final sunset date of January 31, 2023 for all temporary parklets. To obtain a permanent parklet permit, businesses are encouraged to the City's Sidewalk Dining and Parklets Handbook and submit an application to pw-privatedevelopment@longbeach.gov.
