In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the County of Los Angeles has restricted the operation of some businesses to only occur outdoors. To assist local businesses, the City Council approved a no-fee permit to allow businesses to temporarily operate outside. Please review the following and follow the instructions to submit an application:
Please be aware of these standard conditions on temporary outdoor dining and other temporary outdoor businesses. Not all of these may apply to your business. Submitting an application that is responsive to these conditions will speed up the review of your application.
2) Prepare Your Plan: Prepare a plan showing where on the property the business will take place. Please review the submittal requirements found on the first page of the Zoning Clearance Application.
3) Upload: Your application materials can be uploaded here.
If you are proposing to have a tent or a combination of tents more than 400 square feet you will need a permit from the Los Angeles County Fire Department. Please refer to the Fire Department office in Irwindale at (626) 430-3050 / 5200 Irwindale Ave # 210 Irwindale, CA 91706.
Restaurants and other businesses that sell food or drinks should check with the Los Angeles County Health Department regarding their permitting process and requirements.
