The City of Chico announced it's working on a plan to temporarily expand outdoor dining due to the closure of indoor dining statewide. Mark Orme, City of Chico City Manager. "We hope to give them the tools they need to continue to serve their customers, pay employees, and keep their business operating despite these difficult times." This order will permit restaurants, wineries, bars, pubs, breweries, and tasting rooms to apply for a temporary use for COVID-19 which will allow these establishments to use areas like sidewalks, recreation spaces, and parking lots.
