Restaurant Recovery Outdoor Seating Pilot Program
The City of Miami Beach intends to provide additional opportunities for restaurants to provide outdoor dining in an effort to promote the economic recovery of the city’s restaurants, as well as provide an opportunity for residents and visitors to resume dining at local businesses. Accordingly, on May 13, 2020, the City Commission adopted Resolution No. 2020-31276, creating the Restaurant Recovery Outdoor Seating Pilot Program
This program is intended to be temporary in nature, and shall remain in effect through September 30, 2020, or until otherwise extended. It will supplement the city’s formal sidewalk café permit process, in a business-friendly manner and to allow for an expedited process. To this end, the city’s standard requirement for stamped engineering plans will be waived. Click
