Webinar: Creating & Managing Outdoor Restaurant & Retail Space

Held Wed, May 27, 2020 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM (EDT)

A grid of fifteen people participating in a virtual call


Many municipalities are wrestling with how to assist restaurants and retailers during this transition and through whatever phases of reopening bring us towards a new normal. Our hope is that this webinar will help municipal staffers work through the details of managing outdoor dining and retail spaces in the public sphere.
