Great News! On July 14, City Council approved the Temporary Outdoor Business Permit that allows restaurants and other businesses to expand onto sidewalks, parking lots and into parking spaces.  This extends the Mayor’s Executive Order (July 7, 2020) which encouraged restaurants to set up tables and chairs onto the PROW (Public Right of Way).  The goal is to make this a semi-permanent option as long as social distancing orders are in place. The City has set up a fantastic and comprehensive website that will answer all of your questions about this program as well as link you to a very simple permit application.  If you are located in the La Jolla Business Improvement District the City has granted La Jolla Village Merchants Association the ability to review and grant permits for SIDEWALK CAFES only.  By helping with this process, City Staff can tend to the more complicated applications such as “parklets.”
