Apply for a Temporary Outdoor Business Permit
The Temporary Outdoor Business Operation Permit supports the recovery of local retail outlets and restaurants devastated by economic impacts from COVID-19 by helping businesses with limited footprints operate in outdoor settings in parking lanes that are adjacent to their businesses. The goal is to help dining and retail outlets with space constraints expand operations outdoors so they can cost-effectively implement safety, health, and distancing protocols. This permit from the city is required for any outdoor operations taking place in the parking lane and must be acquired before you apply for a North Park Main Street Outdoor Business Enhancement Grant.
If you choose to build a deck in the parking spaces outside your business, or if you already have, please email [email protected]
