The Town of Normal is extending permission for outdoor dining through Sunday, November 1 unless weather conditions dictate otherwise.
Businesses who previously applied for outdoor dining do not need to reapply. Business owners who would like to apply for a new outdoor dining operation should contact Town Clerk Angie Huonker at firstname.lastname@example.org for an application. The application must be signed and returned before opening an outdoor dining area. The outdoor dining extension leaves in place all the regulations implemented in late May. These regulations include but are not limited to the following:
• No smoking permitted• No amplified sound allowed• Patrons must have access to indoor restrooms (Portapotties not allowed)• Open alcohol may not be removed from the designated outdoor dining areas• Outdoor dining areas will close at 10 p.m.• All regulations by the State or the County Health Department apply• ADA accessibility and accessible parking must be maintained
These changes will remain in effect until November 1, 2020. Patrons will find each restaurant is responsible for enforcing these rules as they reopen, and the Town reminds patrons that social distancing and handwashing protocols should be followed.
