To help restaurants take advantage of guidelines for restaurant openings in Governor Ron DeSantis’ Safe, Smart, Step-by-Step Plan to Reopen Florida, the city adopted a temporary policy allowing restaurants the flexibility to create or expand their seating outdoors for on-site food consumption.
This policy allows the ability to place outdoor seating within parking or landscaped areas and within the city’s right-of-way, subject to city approval.
To expedite the process, there is no formal application or approval necessary for restaurants wanting to expand their seating configurations to private property as long as appropriate social distancing guidelines and ADA requirements are followed.
Restaurants wanting to place seating within the city’s right-of-way, are asked to contact the city’s Planning Department at (386) 671-8120.
