Outdoor Dining and Curbside Retail

The State has lifted its regional Stay-At-Home Order effective January 25, 2021.  We are now accepting new requests for businesses that wish to apply to use public right-of-way such as sidewalks adjacent to their business, to temporarily expand capacity outdoors by applying for a Temporary Outdoor Dining and Retail permit through the Community Services Department.
 
The City of Richmond is providing opportunities for businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic to utilize public and privately-owned outdoor areas, including parking lots, for outdoor dining and retail use. Applications can be requested by contacting us at CSDregistration@ci.richmond.ca.us
 
A PowerPoint has been created to help you understand and guide you through the application process
