Apply for a Spaces to Places permit

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.

Update related to Covid-19

PBOT’s Portland in the Streets team has temporarily paused our Spaces to Places program in response to our current Covid-19 public health crisis. We remain committed to all the ways we use our public space for community building and connection, even if we can’t do what we normally do.

We expect the Spaces to Places program to return when Multnomah County moves into their Phase 2 opening. To keep up to date on when the program will return, or to learn about other Portland in the Streets programs:
