Outdoor Dining

The Village is committed to assisting our restaurants through this transition and encourages those that are interested in pursuing outdoor dining to prepare a basic layout to submit for review by the Community Development Department. The Village will work with restaurateurs to find opportunities to create as much outdoor seating as possible by utilizing parking lots and other areas.  More information is available on the Outdoor Dining Permits page.
