City Council directed staff to work with Livermore merchants on ways to safely expand their operations into adjacent outdoor areas, in anticipation that Alameda County will be loosening restrictions in the coming weeks. Merchants can apply for temporary use of outdoor areas to provide additional seating, retail space, or dedicated curbside pick-up.
There is no cost to apply. The City is procuring all fencing, railing, and barricades for expanded outdoor areas. Merchants will be responsible for providing all tables, chairs, lighting, umbrellas, displays, etc.

Livermore merchants can fill out an Outdoor Dining/Display application now.
Questions? Contact the Planning Department: (925) 960-4450 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to individual applications, we encourage merchants to work together with their neighbors to propose unique solutions that take advantage of their particular locations. This could include combined seating areas, street closures, dedicated delivery areas, and/or grouped drop-off and pick-up zones, to further enhance shopping and dining experiences.
