As Citrus Heights moves further along in the stages of California’s Pandemic Resilience Roadmap, various industries in our City are resuming operations. During this transition, the City’s top priority remains the health and safety of our workforce and community. To help dine-in restaurants and retail shops adapt to the State and County guidelines for re-opening, the City of Citrus Heights has established criteria for utilizing existing outdoor space.
The City’s Temporary Outdoor Program (TOP) relaxes regulations concerning use of outdoor spaces. This outdoor program aims to help Citrus Heights businesses adhere to State and County health orders and guidelines, like regulations requiring a six foot clearance between groups at restaurants.
To allow for timely implementation, businesses will not need a permit from the City to participate in TOP. City staff have created an easy-to-follow guide, providing detailed information and allowing businesses to self-certify. Businesses who follow the City’s guide are able to participate in TOP.
