Colonial Heights City Council Approves Emergency Ordinance for Temporary Outdoor Dining

The Executive Orders of the Governor have imposed restrictions on dining at restaurants, which has caused a financial burden for many restaurants. On June 9, 2020, the Colonial Heights City Council passed Emergency Ordinance No. 20-4, which allows restaurants located in the City of Colonial Heights to provide for outdoor dining on certain sidewalks directly adjoining one or more of the restaurant’s exterior walls and the restaurant’s parking lot. 

This emergency ordinance is effective beginning June 9, 2020 and will expire on August 8, 2020.  Please see the attached Ordinance for more information.  For questions, please contact the City’s Economic Development Office by phone (804) 898-3002 or by email:
