PBOT is currently developing permanent design guidelines for the Healthy Business Permitting Program to allow restaurants and bars to use the public Right-of-Way and expand their dining space through sidewalk cafés and streetside installations. These guidelines will ensure access for people with disabilities, emergency response, public transit operations, and loading zones and address street safety hazards.
PBOT is requesting public comment on the draft design guidelines from the business community as well as the general public.
Review the guidelines and give your input via this survey by April 26th!
The survey takes 10 minutes and will have an impact on outdoor spaces for years to come. Thank you for your time in providing your feedback! For additional comments please email outdoordiningpdx@
