Temporary Outdoor Dining Permit Program to Help Increase Business
Outdoor dining helps restaurants increase patronage while also adhering to Health Order requirements.
To assist restaurants’ transition to outdoor dining, effective immediately the City of Monterey Park is facilitating and accelerating a new Temporary Outdoor Dining Permit program, as part of the City’s Business Recovery Program, to allow expanded outdoor dining for restaurants citywide. To help restaurants in Monterey Park get back on their feet after the Coronavirus-induced shutdown, the City has waived its fee for outdoor dining and substantially shortened the processing time for application. Restaurants can now obtain a Temporary Outdoor Dining Permit to use public right-of-ways including, for example, sidewalks and public parking lots in as little as two to three business days.
Restaurants may also use private property, such as parking lots, for outdoor dining. The same application for outdoor dining on sidewalks and public parking spaces applies to the use of private property.
For more information about the permit process/application, please contact:
