10/9 - Update: PBOT Winter Healthy Businesses Program

PBOT officially updated the Winter Healthy Businesses program on Friday, Oct. 9, 2020. The following update includes additional information about guidelines for tents/canopies and keeping other winter equipment clear of pedestrian zones.

*NEW* Winter Healthy Businesses permits 

All current Healthy Businesses permits are set to expire Nov. 1, 2020. To ensure businesses can stay open in a way that serves their customers through fall and winter, PBOT created the Winter Healthy Businesses permit. These new permits are FREE and will last through March 31, 2021

The deadline to apply for a Winter Healthy Businesses permit is Oct. 25 (if you want it processed before Nov. 1). New applicants, or applicants that don’t need their permit to start Nov. 1 can apply anytime.
