The Santa Barbara City Council is allowing restaurants to continue using parklets on the street but they will no longer be free. Prices range from $3 per square foot per month to $9 depending on configuration. Current businesses may have a variety of parklet styles including but not limited to non-portability, a floor platform, and a roof. Parklets for new businesses must be portable, must have no floor platform, and must have no roof. The City of Santa Barbara reserves the right to remove parklets and clear the right-of-way at its sole discretion but I doubt State Street parades are coming back anytime soon.
