Attention Businesses with JAM Permits:
JAM permits and pandemic Shared Spaces permits will expire on March 31, 2023. If you want to continue using your Shared Spaces location and continue hosting outdoor entertainment and/or amplified sound on a regular basis at this location after March 2023, you must do the following:
1. For a sidewalk or parking lane (parklet), submit a new application for the "legislated" Shared Spaces Permit as soon as possible. For private outdoor property, visit https://sf.gov/use-private-property-your-business for application instructions.
Your pandemic Shared Spaces permit will no longer be valid after March 31, 2023, so you must apply for a new permit if you wish to continue using the Shared Space. Deadline to apply is November 1st, but don’t wait – ACT NOW.
2. If you are approved for the new legislated Shared Spaces permit, and want to continue hosting outdoor entertainment and/or amplified sound at this location, you will need to go through a separate application process with the Entertainment Commission to transition your JAM permit to a permanent outdoor entertainment and/or amplified sound permit. Stand by for follow up messaging from us this Fall with specific next steps.
IMPORTANT: The Entertainment Commission can only begin approving permit applications for permanent outdoor entertainment and/or amplified sound after your business has obtained approval to continue using the location of your Shared Space. Again, don't wait for the November 1st application deadline. ACT NOW.
