Carlsbad companies that have reopened, particularly restaurants, have had to modify their operations significantly. To help address the potential reduction of useable indoor space, given social distancing requirements, the city will allow for the temporary use of public sidewalks and private parking for outdoor dining or expanded retail space.
To date six Carlsbad businesses are in the process of expanding outdoors.
Description of outdoor operations including purpose, activities, functions and hours
Parking location alternative
To-scale site plan of the proposed area with relevant details
If applicable, how you will comply with all alcohol license requirements
Site accessibility including fire, ADA and exit routes
Those wanting to expand onto the sidewalk should apply for a Right of Way Use Application E-12 and complete the associated checklist. Much of the same information as the temporary use of private parking lots is required
