Business Improvement District and City of Berkeley Support for Parklet Materials

Several Business Improvement Districts such as the Downtown Berkeley Association and North Shattuck Association are offering grants for the construction of Parklets and Outdoor Seating.  In addition, the City of Berkeley Office of Economic Development is considering purchasing materials to provide to Businesses and Business Improvement Districts that have been approved for Temporary Parklets.  This could include the free use of barricades and lumber for building a Parklet.
