Expanded Curbside Pickup Zones and Other Business Recovery Measures Approved

In keeping with the City of Santa Monica’s commitment to support local businesses through the COVID-19 pandemic, today a 28th supplement to Santa Monica’s local emergency was approved moving additional business operations and recovery measures forward, including expanded curbside pickup zones and activation of the unused portions of the parking lane on Main Street, as well as cleanup measures now that we are into the eighth month of the pandemic. 

In June, the City rolled out no-cost permits for use of the public-right-of-way and private outdoor space to accommodate outdoor dining and business operations. While restaurants must suspend in-person dining through December 21, and businesses once again rescale their operations under Los Angeles County’s partial Safer at Home Order due to increased spread of the virus, the City is committed to doing all it can for the business community.

“The City of Santa Monica is committed to working with our local businesses to expand use of the public space, offer free permits and advocate for the financial relief only federal stimulus can provide,” said Interim City Manager and Director of Emergency Services Lane Dilg. “As the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health order takes effect temporarily closing outdoor dining, we ask our community to please continue rallying around beloved local businesses by buying local through takeout, curbside, and delivery options.”
