Park Business Operating Permit (P-BOP)


In light of recently released revised guidelines from the Alameda County Public Health Department for the re-opening of local business activities, the City of Fremont launched an Emergency Park Business Operating Permit (P-BOP) Program. This program allows commercial fitness businesses when permitted by the County, to use outdoor space to conduct business by granting temporary access to park spaces to conduct fitness classes. Allowing businesses to operate in outdoor areas will provide them with additional capacity to serve customers, and in such a way assist with economic recovery.
