COVID-19 Business Relief

COVID-19 Business Relief:

The Dublin City Council has authorized the temporary waiver of certain Zoning Ordinance requirements to facilitate business operations affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.  This action is being taken in an effort to assist Dublin based restaurants, retail, fitness, and other businesses that need to adapt their operations as a result of the severe negative economic impacts due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements established by federal, state, and county orders for the safety of customers, workers, and the general public. Waivers may include permits for outdoor operations and the display of temporary banners and A-frame signs.

Outdoor Commercial Business Operations

Dublin based businesses may file a request for a waiver with the City of Dublin’s Planning Division related to outdoor operations such as outdoor seating for restaurants, temporary outdoor display of merchandise for retail businesses, outdoor fitness classes for fitness gyms/studios, or other similar outdoor operations. There is no fee associated with this waiver, which can be filed electronically and will be reviewed within 48 hours.  Businesses can download the COVID-19 Relief Temporary Use Permit Application online and submit it to permits@dublin.ca.gov. Please contact Planning Staff at (925) 833-6610 if you have any questions or need assistance.

Temporary Promotional Banner and A-Frame Signs
