Winter Outdoor Seating Operations
The City is in the process of creating Winter guidelines for those of you that wish to continue operations outdoors. However, while weather is unpredictable, we need to prepare for snow emergencies and construction related activities while keeping public safety in mind. Knowing your plans for the winter and the adjustments you plan to make will give us a better idea of what to advocate for and provide in terms of assistance.

The Licensing Commission extended outdoor seating until January 11, 2021. Your feedback on whether an extension to this date is necessary would also be helpful.
