Erie on Thursday announced it is creating a temporary program to allow restaurants to operate in outdoor patio settings adjacent to their businesses.
“The intent of the program is to allow for greater social distancing and safety for restaurant-goers as state health orders now allow restaurants to resume sit-down service,” the town stated in an email.
On the webpage at which businesses can submit proposals to operate in outdoor settings, Erie stated its regulations will be consistent with state guidelines released on May 25, that allow restaurants to open for in-person dining at 50% capacity of indoor occupancy limits or 50 people, whichever is less.
Restaurants can learn more and submit proposals fto operate in an outdoor patio settings at erieco.gov/outdoorexpansion.
