Temporary Outdoor Dining

Temporary Outdoor Dining Permits 

Businesses eligible to apply for a Temporary Outdoor Dining Permit include restaurants and bars already established in the Village that are in good standing.  Businesses whose primary function is video gaming are not eligible to apply. Only bars and restaurants with an existing Liquor License in the Village may serve alcohol in an outdoor seating area.  

This is a 30-day temporary permit. Renewals may be considered in light of the evolving guidance from the CDC and the Illinois Governor’s Office surrounding COVID-19. 

Our staff is committed to working with all interested business owners to expedite permit applications as quickly as possible.  The Village is waiving all costs associated with the permit application, plan reviews and inspections.
