To support the backbone of our local economy, the City of Woodland will award funding to qualifying Woodland for-profit small business-to-consumer restaurant / café (“food”) establishments with a maximum of 20 full-time employees that wish to build parklets in the public right-of-way through the Citywide Parklet Program.

A total of roughly $125,000 is available for allocation. The City hopes to support all qualifying applicants, but funds may be subject to award by criteria depending on the amount of applications. Deadline is July 31st, but applications will be awarded on a first come, first served basis.
