WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. (KDVR) – The City of Wheat Ridge is providing guidance and an equipment purchase and rental reimbursement program for businesses reopening with new or modified outdoor space.

Changes included in the outdoor modifications guidelines:

  • Outdoor space is permitted for business operations on private property
  • In most cases permits are not required
  • The City will quickly review liquor license premises modifications  (associated state fees are eligible for reimbursement)

The equipment rental and purchase reimbursement program is a collaboration between the City of Wheat Ridge and Localworks, a community-based, non-profit development corporation, through CARES Act funds.

Additional business resources are available. For questions contact the Wheat Ridge Economic Development Manager Steve Art at 720-454-9040 or sart@ci.wheatridge.co.us.
