In another effort to help local businesses severely impacted by the economic damage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Monterey is proactively offering retail and restaurant businesses an opportunity to expand outdoors. Businesses can apply for a temporary encroachment permit that would allow them to move their products and services onto the sidewalk in front of their business location, without impacting streets or parking stalls. The application along with a "to scale" drawing of the table/chairs layout is required to ensure Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance. NEWS RELEASE IN PDF
From the beginning of this unprecedented fiscal and health crises, the City of Monterey recognized the crucial need to work together with area partners to help local small businesses ride out the Shelter in Place Order. NEWS RELEASE IN PDF

A message from Mayor Roberson:
"Beautiful Monterey is a special place to live, work, and visit, and one of the important reasons for this is the preservation and appreciation of our historical assets. As we go forward to celebrate the 250th birthday of our city which we all love and care for together, we know that history plays an important role in keeping our small town feeling and cultural diversity."
"This will surely be a historical remembrance and a year none of us will ever forget. Let this be not only a birthday celebration of our special city, but a healing time for all of us during this difficult time."
