Sidewalk Seating & Retail Area Extension

Temporary Sidewalk Seating Extension Permit & Retail Area Extension Permit

To aid in the promotion of Alberta Health Services’ COVID-19 physical distancing requirements, the Municipality of Jasper has created a Temporary Sidewalk Seating Extension Permit and a Retail Area Extension Permit. Permit holders can expand their sidewalk seating or retail displays by using the parking lane in front of their business in one of the following ways: 

  • Use the whole sidewalk in front of the property for customer seating or retail displays and divert the sidewalk into the parking lane, or
  • Use the parking lane for customer seating or displaying products

Below are links to the respective permit applications and a guide to help you complete your application. Please read both carefully before submitting.   

Please note: These are PDF forms that must be downloaded and saved to your computer before being completed.
