Livermore Merchants Outdoor Use Permit -- City Council directed staff to work with Livermore merchants on ways to safely expand their operations into adjacent outdoor areas. Merchants can apply for temporary use of outdoor areas to provide additional seating, retail space, dedicated curbside pick-up, health and fitness classes, or personal services. 

There is no cost to apply. The City is procuring all fencing, railing, and barricades for expanded outdoor areas in the publicly owned streets/parking areas and spaces around Stockmen's Park. Merchants will be responsible for providing all tables, chairs, lighting, tents, umbrellas, displays, etc.

The goal is to implement a plan that is:

  • Flexible, to meet the varying needs of our merchants in the Downtown Core and throughout the City;
  • Safe, such that it complies with State and County Orders, accessibility and traffic safety requirements;
  • Adjustable, to adapt to changing circumstances; and,
  • Quick to implement, as we recognize our merchants are eager to get back to offering their goods and services to our community.

Livermore merchants can fill out an application for a Temporary Outdoor Use Permit now.

Questions? Contact the Planning Department: (925) 960-4450 / planning@cityoflivermore.net.

In addition to individual applications, we encourage merchants to work together with their neighbors to propose unique solutions that take advantage of their particular locations. This could include combined seating areas, street closures, dedicated delivery areas, and/or grouped drop-off and pick-up zones, to further enhance shopping and dining experiences.
