Temporary Land Use Regulation Permitting Tents and Canopies for Temporary Restaurant Dining Space: ITEM APPROVED
The City has been looking into ways that Draper City can support efforts to follow social distancing guidelines and public health orders related to the COVID-19 global pandemic in relation to restaurants. The result is a six-month temporary land use regulation. Enacting the proposed temporary land use ordinance would allow restaurants in Draper City the opportunity to erect temporary outdoor seating under tents or canopies. Such seating would serve the citizens of Draper while following recommended social distancing guidelines in compliance with State and local public health orders.
