The Temporary Outdoor Business Operation Permit supports the recovery of local retail outlets and restaurants devastated by economic impacts from COVID-19 by helping businesses with limited footprints operate in outdoor settings adjacent to their businesses and get closer to the sunshine. The goal is to help dining, retail outlets, and listed establishments below with space constraints expand operations outdoors so they can cost-effectively implement safety, health and distancing protocols.
