Government Affairs Committee Meeting
February Government Affairs
Los Altos Outdoor Dining Program Overview and FeedbackThe city of Los Altos is committed to providing quality outdoor dining opportunities for businesses and community members. Thus, City staff has worked on a proposal for an outdoor dining program that fits the needs of businesses and creates a new dining standard moving forward.
This proposal will be presented to City Council for comment and review at the City Council Study Session on Tuesday, January 24 at 6 PM. No decisions or approvals will be made at this meeting, but rather staff will receive direct feedback from Council members.
After the meeting with City Council, City staff will present the program to the Los Altos Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee on Wednesday, February 1 at 9 AM via Zoom and then host a direct Q&A feedback session with business representatives on Thursday, February 2 at 10 AM at Rustic House (295 Main Street Los Altos, CA 94022). We encourage all business representatives to attend the Thursday session to provide feedback directly to staff.
Upon completion of reviews and outreach, City staff will present the final program draft to City Council in February for formal approval. Note: in the proposed program, all current parklets will need to be permitted until June 30, 2023 when new permanent parklets will need to replace them.
Please let Anthony know if you have any questions or concerns. I am happy to meet individually with business representatives during the week of January 30 or February 6 to ensure that we receive all feedback prior to the program review.
Thank you for being a valued member of our downtown business community. We look forward to hearing your feedback about this program to help shape our downtown for years to come!
