San Francisco's 'Shared Spaces Program' is intended to support neighborhoods by providing additional public space for local business activities. The program will allow neighborhood businesses to share a portion of the public right-of-way, such as sidewalks, full or partial streets, or other nearby public spaces like parks and plazas for restaurant pick-up and other neighborhood retail activity. The program will allow individual businesses or local merchant associations to apply for a no-cost, expedited permit to share the sidewalk or parking lane for business purposes. Examples include restaurant pick-up services, beverage sales, and general retail that are eligible to operate under the City’s Health Order. Once restaurant dining is allowed under San Francisco’s Public Health Order, the public right-of-way could be used for outdoor restaurant seating.
