2024-2028 Outdoor Dining Area Program

 At the October 16, 2023 Regular City Commission meeting, the City Commission approved the 2024-2028 Outdoor Dining Area Program. The directions and forms and documents can be found on the left hand side of the page.

On Monday, May 18, 2020, the Plymouth City Commission passed a resolution authorizing City Administration to make additional public space available for use by dining establishments to expand their service area within the scope of the rules and regulations of the State of Michigan.

In addition, the resolution designates public spaces in front of or on the side of a business as space available for use; this would include parking spaces.

During the 2021 year, the City of Plymouth once again allowed dining establishments the ability to use public spaces adjacent to their business, including parking spaces to be used for patio extensions.

Over the past two years, the city has spent considerable time, energy, and effort to assist in the installation, maintenance, and removal of patio extensions for its business community. With the health orders, restrictions, etc. changing, the City of Plymouth is still interested in helping its business communities as they rebound from the past couple of years, and it has taken the feedback from the businesses in its creation of the 2023 City of Plymouth Patio Extension Program.
