Additional Outdoor Dining Space Continues Thru October

At a Special Meeting June 29, the City Council voted to extend the special temporary outdoor dining program through October. Restaurants and bars offering expanded outdoor dining must follow all requirements of the Governor’s Executive Orders, as well as requirements from state and county health agencies, and the CDC. This includes keeping tables six feet apart.  

Outdoor Dining Spaces 

  • 1st Street: The two plazas off of 1st Street offer outdoor dining space for adjacent restaurants and tables for general public use. In addition, a portion of 1st Street will remain closed to vehicle traffic to accommodate more outdoor seating.  
  • Parking Lots and Sidewalks: Restaurants may continue to use parking lots for outdoor dining, subject to meeting certain permitting requirements for access and parking availability.. Restaurants also may use public sidewalks for outdoor dining, subject to permitting requirements, including maintaining an open walking path for pedestrians. 
  • Municipal Building Plaza: Tables have been set up on Main St. in front of City Hall for public use. 
  • Walnut Avenue: A portion of Walnut Avenue also is closed to accommodate outdoor dining.
