The city is pleased to offer a new grant opportunity to businesses citywide wishing to expand into parking lots or on-street parking. The program includes two grant types:
■ Design Grants at no cost to the grantee, the city will contract with a designer (e.g., structural engineer) to produce required permit-ready drawings for the construction of a compliant outdoor service area.
■ Construction Grants (70 percent matching grants up to $15,000) The city will provide cash-matching grants to cover a portion of costs associated with constructing a compliant outdoor service area.
Applications for the Open Air Beaverton grants are now open and can be found at www.BeavertonOregon.gov/OABGrants.
