The City of Naperville has relaxed outdoor seating regulations in an attempt to help Naperville bars and restaurants reopen for outdoor dining as allowed in Phase 3 of the Governor’s Restore Illinois plan.

Through an executive order signed today (May 24, 2020) by Mayor Steve Chirico, the City has amended its Municipal Code to allow for outdoor seating without a permit and published detailed guidelines for bars and restaurants that want to expand or temporarily add outdoor seating areas.

“We know that the restaurant industry has been hit hard by the statewide order prohibiting dine-in operations,” said Mayor Chirico. “We are hoping this order provides some flexibility for establishments wanting to take advantage of the options available to them in this next phase of reopening our economy.”
