On June 3, 2020, City Council approved the use of public ROW for businesses who are wishing to serve patrons in streets and/or alleys.

4.Sidewalk Café License Application – $100 Fee - If you have already submitted an application, then you DO NOT need to apply again. If you haven’t submitted this application and the necessary insurance, you will need to do so prior to issuance of the Revocable ROW Permit. These will be processed expeditiously in 1-2 business days.
5.Use of ROW Agreement – NO FEE - This is required for businesses or groups of businesses prior to issuance of the Revocable ROW Permit.
On the traffic control plan, you will need to describe on the plan or separately, you will need to describe how you plan to create a barrier between your patrons in the street and the active vehicular traffic, if that is part of your proposal. The City of Bend has a very limited amount of traffic control devices at this time due to road maintenance projects, so please reach out to local resources for those devices for your ROW closures.
Please take a moment to review these materials.
