New Temporary Outdoor Operations Permit Process:
In an effort to assist restaurants and other businesses in quickly installing outdoor dining or curbside/storefront pickup areas that would comply with State and County Public Health directives, the City Council adopted an Urgency Ordinance establishing a streamlined permitting process. A business may apply for a no-fee Temporary Outdoor Operations permit by completing the linked application and submitting to the Planning Division at email@example.com. Please allow up to two days for staff to review and process a submitted application. If you have any questions about the submittal process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 949-443-6331.
Effective 5/18/2020, all new Planning Applications will be required to be submitted in person at City Hall by appointment only. The City will no longer be accepting electronic submittals for new applications. Any existing applications that have already been submitted electronically will continue to be processed electronically. In order to schedule an appointment, please click here. To protect the health and safety of City Hall staff and visitors, all visitors to City Hall must complete a COVID-19 Public Health Self-Certification Form, wear a face covering or mask and adhere to social distancing protocols. If you have any questions about the submittal process, please email email@example.com or call 949-443-6331.
