7) Street Seats Applications Available Now

PBOT has updated its Street Seats program and set an application deadline of March 1, 2014. Street Seats is a program of the Portland Bureau of Transportation that allows organizations to build a temporary platform in the on‐street parking lane. The platform is the same height as the curb and extends the sidewalk space in order to add additional outdoor seating for a restaurant or to provide additional public space for people to stop, sit, and take in the life of the street.

Today, Portland has eight Street Seat installations, seven of which were organized by restaurants to offer outdoor café seating.  One installation has been designed solely for open public seating and is located at the Center for Architecture at NW Flanders and NW 11th Avenue.

While encouraging additional restaurant and café proposals, the Transportation Bureau will prioritize design proposals that are open to full public use, such as the NW Flanders installation.

Proposals may be seasonal or year-round, and may be located in any part of the city

Application packets as well current Street Seat locations may be found at  www.PortlandOregon.gov/Transportation/StreetSeats

A pool of Street Seats photos from Portland and elsewhere may be found at http://www.flickr.com/groups/pdxstreetseats/
