The City is here to facilitate and looking forward to our City's restaurants re-opening when allowed by the Monterey County Health Officer.
The City is waiving fees and hearings for the following:
- Sidewalk Dining permits; which allow dining on the sidewalk
- Encroachment permits; that allow for reservation of parking spaces to facilitate curbside pick up for take-out service;
- Administrative Use permits, to allow temporary outdoor dining on private property.
