On Wednesday, May 27 an Emergency Directive was put in place to modify certain sections of the Westminster Municipal Code (WMC) to temporarily allow restaurants and bars to expand into designated outdoor areas adjacent to their businesses, in order to promote social distancing and public health measures related to COVID-19.

Please click the link below to complete an application to expand your service area.
