Outdoor Dining – Adopted Zoning Ordinance Amendment

The Outdoor Dining amendment establishes outdoor dining as an accessory use to permit the continuation of the type of outdoor dining associated with a restaurant or other type of food establishment that was allowed during the COVID-19 Emergency. Specifically, the proposed amendment maintains the approach followed during the pandemic that permitted outdoor dining on private property by right, subject to standards, and introduces a new administrative permit process (AP) for outdoor dining in a parking lot.
