2. *Introduction and Discussion of City Council T2020-6655 Outdoor Dining: This bill would repeal the temporary outdoor dining program established by Local Law 77 and create a permanent outdoor dining program that would allow restaurants to offer outdoor dining to patrons in certain spaces. The Department of Transportation (DOT) would be required to create a self-certification process that would restaurants to utilize the roadway adjacent to the curb in front of the business frontage. The bill would also legalize outdoor propane heaters.

On Friday, September 25, Mayor de Blasio announced the Open Restaurants Program will be made permanent, extending outdoor dining season year-round. The extension also extends to the Open Streets: Restaurants Program. The Mayor also provided additional guidance on adjacent properties to outdoor dining and on outdoor heaters. Electrical heaters will be allowed on both sidewalks and roadways. Propane and natural gas heaters will be allowed on sidewalks only; they will remain prohibited in roadway seating. Furthermore, additional guidance on tent enclosures and roadway safety was also issued. Details on all of the above are found directly in September 25 press release from the Mayor’s Office.
