GRANTS PASS – Downtown parklets established to assist local restaurants with providing outdoor seating during COVID-19 restrictions, will remain in Grants Pass through the end of October.
A Parklet Addendum to Sidewalk Café Permits established to provide for the popular Euro-style dining attractions is no longer in effect. The addendum authorized the use of designated parklet space for a temporary period due to restrictions put in place by Governor Executive Order No. 20-27.
The Oregon risk-based system of regulations ended at midnight June 30.
Due to the popularity of the outdoor dining feature, the Grants Pass City Council has directed city staff to explore and evaluate the feasibility and design of potential permanent parklets for the future.
Staff will return to the council with details about various options for consideration at a future date.
