As a way to allow Watertown restaurants to offer more seating as the reopen during COVID-19, the Town Manager announced that owners and managers can apply for temporary outdoor seating.
Town Manager Michael Driscoll sent out the application on Thursday afternoon.
The tables must remain at least six feet apart when diners are seated, and the take out area must be at least six feet from where seats are located.
A five-foot path must be maintained on the sidewalk outside the restaurant to make them ADA handicap accessible.
The outdoor seating area must be on property owned or leased by the restaurant. Seating will also be allowed on sidewalks and Town-owned property and rights of way.
Tents and other structures are allowed, but restaurants must consult with the Watertown Building Inspector and get the proper permits.
