Alcoholic Beverage Sales and Outdoor Dining Zone Text Amendments (3.a)
ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE SALES: This item proposes two changes related to alcoholic beverage sales at restaurants: 1) it allows the sale of alcohol for takeout in accordance with ABC regulations and State law and 2) it streamlines the hearing process for alcoholic beverage sales for restaurants indoors at all hours and at outdoor dining areas before 11:00 p.m
OUTDOOR DINING PARKING REDUCTION: This is a permanent measure to what was temporarily established through the OUTZones under Urgency Ordinance No. 20-1106U. Staff proposes to allow outdoor dining spaces to operate without additional parking, regardless of square footage. Specifically, it would eliminate parking requirements for all outdoor dining areas in the public-right-of-way (sidewalks and metered parking) and on private property.
