Keep it outside
Last week Senate Bill 314 and 793, two bills seeking to streamline the permitting process for restaurants, both passed unanimously through the state senate committee last week and now just need to be voted on by state legislature. Essential outdoor changes that restaurants had to make to operate during the pandemic like outdoor drinking areas, to-go cocktails, and parklets will become legal for longer with proper permits, and the bills make it faster and easier for bars and restaurants to obtain the required permits.
Along with being pivotal in the survival of countless bars and restaurants, outdoor seating has been met with wild popularity. So even after emergency protocols are lifted, places currently offering outdoor seating will hopefully be able to continue to do so for at least a year after.
