In recognition of the difficulties facing restaurant owners during the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Fridley City Council has temporarily suspended the typical approval processes for restaurants to add outdoor dining areas.
Rather than the usual 60-day approval process for outdoor space, restaurants can complete a Temporary Outdoor Dining Registration Form and submit it to the City.
All spaces added via this process are considered temporary and must be removed by Nov. 15, 2020.
Restaurants must comply with all of the regulations on the Temporary Outdoor Dining Registration Form.
Alcohol Licenses Holders
Alcohol License Holders have additional requirements for fencing and insurance.They must complete the application, a certificate of liquor liability insurance and a site plan indicating where fencing will be located and how ingress/egress will be provided.
Applications can be submitted to Ryan George, Deputy Director - Police Division, by email.
