At their council meeting this Tuesday, the City of Beaufort approved a set of pragmatic policy changes to support local businesses strained by COVID-19 closure. Dubbed “Together Beaufort,” the package includes:

  • Restaurants whose property is contiguous to City-owned property, such as Waterfront Park, can lease an outdoor parcel up to 400 square feet for $10 a month,
  • All-day free parking will be allowed in the Marina parking lot on Fridays and Saturdays,
  • Eased restrictions on signage, banners, and sidewalk sales for all merchants.

These measure take effect June first and run through the end of August. More details at:
