*** Restaurant Re-Opening Guidance in accordance with the state of Virginia’s Forward Virginia Guidelines *** 

Governor Northam’s recent executive order allows restaurants to have outdoor seating, so long as such seating is six feet apart. Restaurants in the City may use adjacent parking spaces on private property for such seating without any City approval so long as no furniture, equipment, tents, or any other facilities are left on the parking spaces overnight. If a restaurant wishes to leave items on parking spaces overnight, it shall apply for a Temporary Use Permit by clicking on the form at https://www.fredericksburgva.gov/DocumentCenter/View/15406/Temporary-Use-Permit---2019?bidId= and submitting it electronically at planning@fredericksburgva.gov. The Temporary Use Permit for outdoor seating will be issued for 30 days or until the City’s emergency is suspended, whichever occurs first. The $30 fee for the Temporary Use Permit for outdoor seating will be waived until the city’s emergency is suspended.
