Wappinger Town to Start NYS Phase II Outdoor Dining On June 9, 2020. Special COVID-19 Outdoor Seating Permits Available

TOWN OF WAPPINGER RESTAURANTS ARE AUTHORIZED FOR OUTDOOR DINING  AS OF JUNE 9, 2020

Outdoor dining will be permitted as part of the Hudson Valley’s Phase II re-opening. Restaurants that do not currently have outdoor seating can apply for a COVID 19 Outdoor Seating Permit through the town’s building department.

To apply for an outdoor seating permit, please fill out the application found here: Outdoor Dining Permit

Applicants must meet the permit requirements and all applicable NYS Health Department requirements.

 

Things to consider for Outdoor Dining:

Permitting requires submission of a site plan that includes all working aspects of your site, especially:

  • The placement of the tent / structure
  • Fire rating of the tent
  • Planned capacity – tables must be at least 6’ apart
  • The electrical plan (electrical permit is required)
  • Physical barriers to protect diners from vehicles
  • If curbside pick-up will continue, how the two will be separated
  • Restroom access plans (w/ ADA compliance)
  • Adherence to DOH guidelines.

 

Please refer to the NYS guidelines for Outdoor and Take-Out/Delivery Food Services
