Reopening With Outdoor Dining

Ready to reopen? Let us help!

Make your dining capacity whole again by allowing indoor and outdoor seating. Due to the pandemic, indoor seating has been reduced to 50%, but expanding your seating outside is a great option. 

View our ordianance workflow steps below for your outdoor restaurant and bar expansion:


  1. #1 Application for Outdoor Seating
  2. #2 Apply for Building Inspections
  3. #3 Contact the Fire Department for Inspection
  4. #4 Final Inspections & Permit Recieval
Step one is to submit your completed application, outdoor dining sketch plan, liquor license (if applicable) to the Planning Department. The site must meet all Zoning, Planning and Site Development requirements (see attached Section 19.11.c of the Zoning Ordinance). Sketch plans are reviewed at the same time inspections are done.
If all is approved, you will receive a Zoning approval notification within two weeks. Please make sure you enter the best contact email for faster notification.
