Business Open Streets
The Open Streets program provides local businesses and restaurants with temporary parklets and sidewalk space to provide physically-distanced options. Businesses can request these spaces as well as 10-minute loading zone signs for their establishments at no cost.
For more information relating to the Open Streets program, please see our Frequently Asked Questions.
Under City Council direction, Temporary Parklet Applications through the Open Streets Program are no longer being accepted. To obtain a permanent parklet, please visit the Public Works Permits Webpage and submit a new application.
