Temporary Outdoor Seating Program and Phase 2 Information
Phase 2 has arrived! Outdoor dining and in-store shopping is back!
Lowell business owners: If you have an existing license and
wish to expand your outdoor seating area, you do not need to take any action. For restaurants in this situation, they may install their licensed outdoor seating and can immediately serve customers.
If you require an amendment to your liquor license, please note that you will need approval from the Lowell License Commission (978-674-1513). Contact Division of Development Services (978-674-4144) if you have any questions about the program.
