An Important Message from
the City Manager and the City Attorney to Morgan Hill's Business and Development Community
To Our Morgan Hill Business and Development Community,

To encourage more economic activity and to speed recovery from the shelter-in-place orders, the Morgan Hill City Manager and City Attorney have exercised their discretion to ease enforcement of certain City regulations, specifically to allow:

The use of outdoor areas for retail merchandise pickup, and expanded restaurant space
  • Enforcement of minimum parking requirements in shopping centers and commercial districts has been suspended.
Commercial and industrial operations to continue with social distancing
  • Enforcement of limitations on hours of operation has been suspended - this suspension does not apply to hours of operations for bars and restaurants that serve alcohol.
Further social distancing by extending shift work hours
  • Enforcement of construction hours to allow for construction between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday, for certain large construction projects, except in public rights-of-way has been suspended. Home remodels in residential neighborhoods are not included.
Developers to value-engineer approved projects and to modify designs to allow social distancing
  • Created streamlined processes to modify design review approvals for projects impacted by COVID-19. Fees for this streamlined process will be waived.
The use of city rights-of-way and other public spaces to expand retail and restaurant operations to allow social distancing
  • Created a streamlined process for encroachment permits. Fees for this streamlined process will be waived.

At the June 3rd City Council meeting a complete economic recovery plan will be presented to the City Council for approval. We encourage you to participate in that meeting.

Please don't hesitate to contact us or our Economic Development Director, Edith Ramirez if you have any questions or comments.
