Cities support businesses by passing outdoor expansion permits, apply today!

As businesses and restaurants are allowed to gradually re-open under State and County public health orders, they will be faced with new safety protocols such as limiting indoor seating and reducing customer occupancy to facilitate social distancing.  The Economic Development Departments in each city are supporting businesses succeeding through these times and in submitting proposals to temporarily operate outdoors during this pandemic.

To help address the reduction of useable indoor space, all five cities will allow for the temporary use of the outdoors for dining, expanded retail space and other business operations.

To apply for a permit within your city, visit the link below:
