Dear Open Streets Businesses, 

The Open Streets Initiative is currently scheduled to end on June 30, 2022. Business owners with temporary parklets who are interested in permanent parklets must communicate an intent to apply by January 31, 2022.  

Please note that permanent parklets have more stringent, structural and traffic safety requirements. Your temporary parklet is not considered a permanent structure and will need to be removed prior to constructing an approved permanent parklet. Existing open streets temporary parklets are not approved or designed to be permanent.

Please review the guidelines in the Parklet and Sidewalk Dining Handbook before completing the application. You can send the application and any questions about permanent parklets to:

REMINDER: Not all existing temporary parklet locations are eligible for the installation of a permanent parklet. Each request will be considered on an individual basis. 

Many businesses have requested for their temporary parklet to be removed by the City of Long Beach in order to better utilize existing parking. If you are interested in having your temporary parklet removed, please contact us at
