Newtown Borough Planning Ahead For Outdoor Dining Reopening | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

Newtown Borough officials will discuss ideas for allowing local restaurants — which have been closed since mid-March — take advantage of the governor's yellow phase guidelines for outdoor dining.

 

The topic will be discussed during a Zoom meeting Wednesday. You can register to attend the Zoom here

 

The agenda includes a segment on the process for allowing temporary permits for tents, outdoor dining, and alcohol consumption.

 

Borough Council member Nicole Rodowicz said she expects council to discuss how they can help State Street restaurants make plans for outdoor dining.

johnmacknewtown's insight:

At recent Newtown Board of Supervisors (BOS) meetings, the Supervisors grappled with how the township might be able to allow restaurants without outdoor seating certificates of occupancy to place outdoor seating tables on sidewalks and/or parking areas. Several ideas were put forward and discussed. Find the streaming videos of recent BOS meetings here

 

Meanwhile, Newtown Borough has already acted and issued:

RESOLUTION NO. 6-4-2020

 

A RESOLUTION OF NEWTOWN BOROUGH, BUCKS COUNTY, ESTABLISHING GUIDELINES AND POLICY FOR OUTDOOR SALES OF FOOD AND MERCHANDISE OF EXISTING BUSINESSES IN THE BOROUGH DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

 

and
