This toolkit has been compiled to help businesses navigate and respond to capacity restrictions, social distancing guidelines, and customer preferences during the COVID-19 pandemic. To help address the economic impact of COVID-19 on our local economy, the City of Brevard encourages businesses to think creatively about using both private and public property during the State of Emergency. Many of the more creative uses listed in this toolkit will require the new, fee-free COVID-19 Use Permit for the duration of the Transylvania County State of Emergency. Because the uses listed within this toolkit are not exhaustive, we encourage you to contact the City of Brevard Planning Department at (828) 885-5630 or at 95 W. Main Street, Brevard, NC 28712 if you are unsure about whether your proposed use requires a permit. The City Planning staff look forward to working with Brevard businesses in developing creative responses to COVID-19 that enhance our local economy!
