Emergency Temporary Use Permits for Outdoor Seating

As businesses begin to re-open in the City of Stanton, it is vital to assist restaurants, retail stores, and commercial establishments to operate in a safe manner where social distancing is maintained in accordance with guidance from the State of California and Orange County local health officials. It is critical that these establishments do so in a manner where social distancing is maintained to limit the spread of COID-19. Therefore, it is necessary to temporarily allow commercial businesses to operate on private property, parking lots, and public sidewalks.

On June 9, 2020, the City Council adopted Urgency Ordinance No. 1103 authorizing the temporary use for foodservice and outdoor seating areas on public and private property for existing businesses. Upon approval, the Urgency Ordinance will authorize the City Manager to issue Emergency Temporary Use Permits for outdoor seating and waive the corresponding fee. The ordinance will sus spend discretionary permit requirements and limited Stanton Municipal Code requirements during the State of Emergency. The City Manager may impose any conditions deemed necessary to ensure the temporary use does not create a hazard to the health, safety, or welfare of the public.
