Outdoor Dining, Sales, Service Area Application (Temporary)

Outdoor Dining Space

In order to facilitate and promote restoration of economic activity and to assist local businesses adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and its associated business reduction and closures to reopen and resume operation while containing the spread of COVID-19 and observing applicable social distancing guidelines and requirements, the City of Berkley intends to temporarily relax and suspend strict enforcement of certain City ordinances and regulations concerning outdoor dining and seating and other outdoor sales and services. 

On August 9, 2021, City Council approved the extension of the resolution to continue to allow outdoor dining, sales, and service areas, until December 31, 2022 (unless otherwise resolved by Council).
