City Council passed a resolution that implements three new temporary business regulations in response to the COVID-19 emergency. Those three new regulations allow institutions, such as schools, churches and governmental facilities, to set up temporary structures to hold activities outdoors that are normally associated with that institutions’ primary functions. The temporary structures must meet all zoning, building and fire regulations.
Instructional classes associated with gyms, fitness studios and other similar places may now be conducted outside the building on the same property as the facility, according to the new regulations.
Any tenant utilizing the temporary signage regulations, which the city passed earlier this year to suspend enforcement of certain sign code, parking, outdoor patio, landscaping, sidewalk sale and outdoor sales regulations to help businesses, must have approval of the owner or property management company.
The resolution also authorizes the city manager to extend, implement or enact these or similar temporary regulations or activities beyond Jan. 5.
