Public Works will be able to honor requests from businesses who would like to establish a temporary ‘Food Pick Up Zone’. Food Pick Up Zones can be established in an existing meter area or signed or unsigned parking area. The duration will be 10 minutes to encourage appropriate turn-over. Eligible applicants include restaurants and businesses who are allowed to continue operation for pick up and take out foods that do not currently have their own off-street parking.
Businesses should go to https://minneapolis.mn.roway.net/ to create an online account and apply for a permit. The permit will be free of charge and valid through March 30th 2020, which may be extended depending on need and conditions. Business who have questions about their application can contact Andrea Swenson at 612.673.3263 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Signs will be available for installation within two days. Installation for permittees will begin immediately thereafter, and Public Works will be assisted by Traffic Control for both installation and enforcement. We will be working with our partners in CPED to help distribute this information to businesses. Information will also be provided to 311 to help answer questions.
