Greensboro Offers Option for Restaurants to Provide Outdoor Dining

Post Date:05/21/2020 5:31 PM
Greensboro restaurants may apply for a special City event permit to offer outdoor dining on sidewalks, public streets, or on-street parking areas during NC's Phase II of reopening, which runs through at least June 26. The City has waived special event permit fees for this purpose. The permitting process includes application review, applicant outreach, and a final site inspection.

Businesses must comply with NC Department of Health and Human Services’ Guidance for Reopening restaurants, NC ABC requirements and other applicable rules. The permitting process does not apply to outdoor dining on private property.

To apply for a special event permit, find the “Restaurant Expansion into Public Right of Way Permitting” section on the City's COVID-19 Web page. For more information or questions about the permitting process, contact the Special Events Office by email or by calling 336-373-4572.
