City Program Helps Businesses Recovery from Impacts of Pandemic

The City of Boulder recognizes COVID-19’s significant impact on local businesses.

Program Overview

In response to the pandemic, the city created the Boulder Business Recovery Program, enabling businesses to expand outside to help offset capacity limits. The latest version of this citywide program runs through Oct. 31, 2021.

To support the program, the city has currently closed several streets, including Pearl Street between 9th and 11th streets, 10th Street from Pearl Street north to the alley south of Spruce Street and Pennsylvania Avenue between 13th Street and the alley.

Curbside Pickup Zone Program

As part of its efforts to support local businesses recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Boulder is offering a Curbside Pick-Up Zone program through Oct. 31, 2021. The program converts some existing loading zones and other parking spaces in downtown Boulder and on University Hill for general curbside pick-up use. An online application for new curbside pick-up zones for businesses that are not in the vicinity of an existing zone is below. These curbside pick-up zones will be free of charge for 10 minutes to provide patrons and services enough time to pick-up orders, and will be clearly signed in English and Spanish.
