Denver Outdoor Places Program

Denver’s Outdoor Places Program builds upon the success of temporary patio spaces used by local businesses during the pandemic. While the temporary outdoor dining program was created in May 2020 to help restaurants and bars safely expand their serving capacity during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the permanent program currently in development will allow these and other businesses to use private and public space for outdoor operations after the temporary program ends.

Project partners include Community Planning and Development, Denver Economic Development and Opportunity, the Denver Fire Department, the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure, and the Department of Excise and Licenses.
