***NEW***Boulder Business Recovery:    Temporary Outdoor Expansion Program for Restaurants

The City of Boulder recognizes the significant impact COVID-19 has had on the local restaurant community. To support local restaurants and simplify the process of reopening, the city has established the Boulder Business Recovery Temporary Outdoor Expansion Program in conjunction with an  emergency order  allowing restaurants to expand outdoor seating. This program streamlines the permitting process for restaurants to expand outdoor seating areas on public and private property. The intent of the program is to protect restaurant patrons and employees, while reopening dine-in service under the state’s   new Safer at Home restaurant guidelines . A 60-minute webinar about the outdoor seating expansion application was recorded on May 26 with city staff, staff from Boulder County Public Health, and the Boulder Chamber and you can watch it here:  webinar        

Visit the  Boulder Business Recovery  webpage for the application, the  Frequently Asked Questions  and more information.
