PROW Public Right of Way Enhancement Program

The Boulevard BIA, through the City’s Public Right-of-Way (PROW) program, allows for sidewalk seating and dining.

Use of the PROW activates the pedestrian realm and provides a transition space between the public sidewalk and private business. It also allows for safer dining during the COVID-19 pandemic.
