The Portland in the Streets team at the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) issues Spaces to Places permits to beautify, repurpose, and energize public spaces into social or cultural areas. These projects should be designed to be long-term and must be open to the public.
PBOT’s Portland in the Streets team has paused our Spaces to Places program. We remain committed to all the ways we use our public space for community building and connection. For information on the new public plaza program please go here:
