Temporary Outdoor Seating Permits Available for Mundelein Restaurants

To support Mundelein businesses in advance of the implementation Phase 3 of Governor Pritzker’s Restore Illinois plan, Mayor Lentz put forth Executive Order 2020-04 allowing temporary outdoor seating in public areas. A temporary outdoor seating area is defined as a space provided by a restaurant, tavern/bar, winery, or brewery upon the same property or upon the public right-of-way adjacent to the business or within reasonable proximity to the business. This temporary outdoor seating area will contain tables and chairs for seating and will be delineated with temporary barriers at the perimeter of the defined seating area. This no fee permit is required to allow for the establishment of a temporary outdoor dining area.  

“We know our businesses are hurting right now due to the pandemic.  We want to find every way possible to help our businesses through this crisis,” Mayor Steve Lentz said. “The outdoor seating areas established under this permit will increase restaurant capacity, ensure adherence to proper physical distancing requirements, and hopefully, promote joy and goodwill throughout the community,” he added.
