In light of the outbreak of COVID-19, and under regulations from the State of California and the County of Orange, restaurants, retail establishments, and assembly uses can operate only with limited occupancy. In response, the City of Tustin is delivering an innovative solution to assist local business owners navigate the reopening of their businesses by introducing the Temporary Use Permit for outdoor restaurant seating, retail establishments, and assembly uses. These businesses now have the opportunity to provide dining and assembly areas for their customers, while adhering to state and local public health regulations. Restaurants may now provide limited indoor dining, as well as temporarily convert portions of adjacent parking areas, walkways, patios, sidewalks, and public rights-of-way into customer dining areas. Other qualified businesses also would be provided the same opportunities.
