BACKGROUND

The COVID-19 Economic Recovery and Assistance Ad Hoc Committee authorized the temporary parklet program in response to the impacts of COVID-19 to permit the activation of on-street parking or sidewalk areas into additional seating or service areas in an effort to assist local businesses with their economic recovery.

The temporary parklet program launched on Monday, May 18th, with 19 temporary parklets currently operating throughout the city. City Council approved amendments to the Special Events Ordinance - Chapter 42A on June 24, 2020, by Resolution No. 20-0970 to allow for temporary parklet permitting through December 31, 2020, with all extension fees waived. On December 9, 2020, City Council approved Resolution No. 20-1879 to allow for temporary parklet permitting through April 30, 2021, with all extension fees waived.

Understanding that businesses will not have recovered from the economic shut down by April 30, 2021 and that businesses will need more time to apply for the new "Street Seats" program, the City seeks to continue assisting businesses by permitting non-permanent temporary parklets through the regular permitting process until September 30, 2021.
