Street Seats 2013 Program Announced
The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is now accepting applications for its new Street Seats 2013 program. Based on similar programs in San Francisco and New York City, PBOT experimented with a pilot Street Seats project in 2012. Based on feedback from community members and business owners, the pilot was deemed a success. PBOT is pleased to announce an application window for new Street Seats program, closing on May 1st, 2013. This application deadline will allow applicants to have approved Street Seats installed in time to take advantage of summer weather while allowing PBOT to review proposals in concert.
Interested applicants should review the new program guidelines, the related design guidelines, and download the Street Seats 2013 program application. Applicants with questions are welcome to contact email@example.com or call 503-823-5291.
The new Street Seats program will replace a rolling application process with limited application windows, to allow the Transportation Bureau to evaluate applications together, identifying potential conflicts between applicants. Interested businesses should plan on meeting an initial application deadline of May 1st.
Site locations and platform design are approved by the City Traffic Engineer based on a set of design criteria.
