REGARDING TEMPORARY SIGN ALLOWANCES
After careful consideration, the City of Palm Beach Gardens will be ending the COVID-19 Temporary Sign Allowance currently in place for our businesses. All unpermitted temporary signs are to be removed by June 30, 2021.
REGARDING OUTDOOR SEATING/USE PLAN
The City’s streamlined process for reviewing requests for expansion of outdoor use areas will continue to be available to businesses until September 30, 2021. As COVID-19 expanded outdoor use comes to an end, the City will be working with the business community to modernize our process and policies for outdoor seating and use.
Any modifications to an approved or existing outdoor seating/use plan, including the outdoor display of merchandise, will be subject to an expedited review by the Planning and Zoning Department.
If you are a local business and wish to expand/modify your outdoor seating/use area, you should email your request to Bahareh Wolfs at email@example.com. YOUR REQUEST MUST INCLUDE A DEPICTION (DRAWING) OF YOUR REQUESTED MODIFICATION. Outdoor music is allowed without amplification. Amplified music is prohibited.
Planning and Zoning will review all such requests and respond to the business within two business days. Your business will receive one of the following three responses:
- Approved with Modifications. (Necessary modifications will be provided to the Requestor.)
- On-Site Review Needed. (Planning and Zoning will request an on-site appointment.)
These services will be provided to our local businesses at no cost. All approvals will expire on September 30, 2021.
If you have any questions, please contact Bahareh Wolfs, Development Compliance Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 561-799-4258.
