Any restaurant that wishes to establish outdoor dining areas in public or private, with the exception of the designated Hollywood Boulevard or Hollywood Beach Broadwalk Temporary Expanded Café Zones, must complete this registration form for the use of Temporary Café Zones and provide the following information:
Submit a drawing showing the layout and dimensions of the area to be used and the proposed location, size and number of tables, chairs, umbrellas, etc. Include the location of doorways, location of trees, parking meters, bus shelters, sidewalk benches, trash receptacles, light poles, and any other obstruction within the public right-of-way.
If a restaurant wishes to establish an outdoor dining area on private property, landlord/property owner authorization is required for new/additional outdoor seating. Submit an e-mail or signed letter from the landlord/property owner containing their contact information and approval.
If a restaurant wishes to establish an outdoor dining area on the public right-of-way in front of an adjacent business, property owner and tenant authorization is required. Submit e-mail(s) or signed letter(s) from the property owner and tenant, if applicable, containing their contact information and approval.
If the proposed new or additional outdoor seating includes parking spaces or other areas designed for or typically used by vehicles (“Vehicular Use Areas”), submit a detailed drawing showing: (i) the location of Vehicular Use Areas to be used for expanded outdoor dining; (ii) a safe path to and from one or more doors of the restaurant to the Vehicular Use Areas; (iii) any barrier or other method proposed to protect the Vehicular Use Areas from vehicular traffic. Additionally, if operation of the outdoor seating is proposed during other than daylight hours, state how lights or other methods will be used to ensure that drivers are aware of and can avoid the outdoor dining in the Vehicular Use Areas. Operations must comply with federal, state and local laws and ordinances.
