Parks & Recreation Commercial Use Regulation Update
The CBJ Parks & Recreation Department is considering changes to the regulations that govern commercial use of parks and recreation facilities. Existing regulations were written nearly 25 years ago, and a number of changes are proposed to provide a better framework to manage commercial use of these public facilities. For more information, go here.
The regular application period for 2022 Commercial Use permits is open Tuesday, February 1 through Thursday, March 31 at 11:59 p.m. Late applications will be accepted April 1 through June 30, 2022 at 4:30 p.m., and will be subject to a $250 late fee. For the 2022 season, only 1-year commercial use permits will be issued. There is a non-refundable $250 application fee per permit. Apply now here.
All applications must be received at the Juneau Parks & Recreation Office at 155 S. Seward Street or emailed to Lauren Verrelli no later than 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, March 31, 2022 to avoid the late fee. Applications received outside the application periods will not be considered for a 2022 Commercial Use Permit.
