In order for a business to operate in or on District property, a business must request permission from the District and be properly permitted for the activity.
Please follow the steps below to get started.
1. Review the criteria under which a business may operate on District property. A business may operate on District property under the following scenarios:
a. The business is part of a public event;
b. The business is contracted with the District to provide a special service such as public safety or information.
c. The business operation is approved through a lease agreement.
d. The business has reserved a District facility or park to provide a one-time service or activity to invited guests.
e. The business wishes to operate a scheduled or programmed activity to invited guests (recreation program, camp, fitness, instructional class).
2. Review the criteria that the District will use to make a decision on approval. Requests for reserved or permitted park use, whether commercial, not-for-profit or private will be based on the following criteria:
a. The proposed activity does not conflict with other public park uses, impede care and maintenance of the park, detract from general park visitor use or enjoyment or directly compete with a District operated or contracted program.
b. The activity is being provided to invited guests only.
c. District rules, regulations and processes have been abided to in the past.
d. There are no outstanding fees or charges.
3. Complete and submit the Park Use Request Form.
4. Expect to hear back from BPRD within 48 hours on your request.
