City of San Diego proposes “Spaces as Places” program to transition pandemic-related outdoor spaces to permanent spaces

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, in July 2020 the City of San Diego approved a Temporary Outdoor Business Operations (TOBO) permit process allowing businesses to use outdoor spaces, including sidewalk areas and parking spots, to operate their business. The City has now proposed a Spaces as Places program “to transition temporary pandemic-response outdoor spaces to permanent spaces that safely bring people together to dine, play and gather.”

More information on this proposal may be found at the following links as well as webinar recording:
