Temporary Use Permit for Restaurants, Retail & Fitness Establishments to Temporarily Utilize Outdoor Spaces
The Dublin City Council has authorized the temporary waiver of certain Zoning Ordinance requirements to facilitate business operations affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. This action was taken in an effort to assist restaurants, retail, fitness and other businesses in need of outdoor space that are experiencing, and will continue to experience, severe negative economic impacts due to the COVID-19 pandemic including distancing requirements established by Health Orders for the safety of customers, workers and the general public. Eligible businesses may file a request for a waiver with the Planning Division related to outdoor seating for restaurants, temporary outdoor display of merchandise for retail businesses, or outdoor fitness classes for fitness gyms/studios. There is no fee associated with this waiver which can be submitted via email and will be reviewed within two business days.
