What’s more fun than making memories with friends and family in the new pop-up Public Square in downtown Auburn Hills?
By now I’m sure many have seen the pop-up Public Square located in downtown Auburn Hills. This temporary public space is centralized downtown, directly adjacent to the DEN and has been rolled out to assist our downtown restaurants and bars with the capacity limitations placed on them during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Auburn Hills Tax Increment Finance Authority, with the assistance from Department of Public Works staff, has rolled out the pop-up Public Square to encourage downtown visitors to order takeout from our many downtown establishments and enjoy the Public Square as an additional seating area. Additionally, the Auburn Hills City Council has allowed the consumption of alcohol at the pop-up Public Square and patrons are permitted to bring their own packaged beer and wine to the designated area.
To expand upon this initiative, the Auburn Hills Tax Increment Finance Authority has purchased additional café seating that has recently been installed in the pop-up Public Square. This partnership is just one of the many examples of how the City and all its Boards and Commissions continue to support our downtown businesses and the growth of downtown Auburn Hills.
In addition to the new seating placed in the pop-up Public Square, additional seating has also been placed at Riverside Park in the Knight Amphitheater plaza located along Squirrel Court. Please note that alcohol consumption is only permitted at the pop-up Public Square and not at the additional seating area added at Riverside Park.
