(a) Purpose and Scope. The general procedure by which the Core City Agencies participating in the Places for People Program coordinate their evaluation of a proposed People Place concept proposal, review of an application for a People Place Permit, and approve and issue a People Place Permit is set forth in Sections 94A.5 and 94A.6 of the Administrative Code. Sections 793.2 through 793.6 of this Code establish the procedure for Public Works’ review and approval of a People Place in the public right-of-way. This procedure shall apply to any prospective “Curbside People Place,” “Roadway People Place,” and “Sidewalk People Place” in the Places for People Program.
(b) Definitions. As provided in Section 94A.2 of the Administrative Code:
“People Place” is a publicly-accessible location approved under the Places for People Program and located (a) on City-owned property, (b) on the sidewalk, and/or (c) in the curbside lane or on all or any portion of the roadway between curbs where the public can gather and participate in commercial or non-commercial offerings and events. Such offerings and events may include, but are not limited to: cultural events, arts activities, and entertainment; food and drink; and general recreation. A People Place is managed, fully or partially, by a Steward under a People Place Permit issued under the Program and may involve the temporary and reversible installation of physical treatments, improvements or elements.
“People Place Categories” are: (a) “City Lot People Place,” which has activities occurring on property owned by the City; (b) “Curbside People Place,” which has activities occurring in a portion of the curbside lane of a roadway; (c) “Roadway People Place,” which has activities occurring in or on any portion of the roadway, except for activities occurring only in the curbside lane; (d) “Sidewalk People Place,” which has activities occurring on a portion of sidewalk, and (e) “Integrated People Place,” which is a single project with activities occurring on a combination of locations that are People Place categories in close proximity to one another and operated by the same Steward.
“People Place Permit” is a permit issued under the Places for People Program through its Core City Agencies that allows a Steward to create a People Place by temporarily occupying and activating the location for a specified period of time.
“Steward” is, for Curbside People Places, Roadway People Places, and Sidewalk People Places, any person or entity who has been issued a People Place Permit that authorizes the permittee, acting as a Steward, to manage and activate a People Place under the Places for People Program.
