Re: Phase 2 New York Forward Re-Opening Plan Outdoor Dining at Restaurants

The Town of Southold is pleased to announce that because of the lobbying efforts of Supervisor Russell and the nine other Suffolk County Town Supervisors, outdoor dining at restaurants will now be allowed when the Long Island Region enters Phase 2 of the New York Forward Re-Opening Plan.  

“After listening to the concerns raised by myself and the other Town Supervisors, the Governor has agreed to move outdoor dining from Phase 3 to Phase 2, which will go a long way to help Southold businesses.”  Supervisor Russell said.  The Supervisor went on to state that “The Town of Southold will work hand in hand with our local business community to begin the reopening and revitalization of our Town.” 

Supervisor Russell announced restaurants seeking to have outdoor dining will be able to file for a temporary permit to do so.  “We are going to have an expedited permitting process that will be free of charge in order to help these businesses hit the ground running,” Supervisor Russell stated.  

The one page application will be available on the Town’s website and may be submitted by email or regular mail to Denis Noncarrow, the Town’s Government Liaison Officer.  

Supervisor Russell added, “We are confident that by instituting these measures we can allow restaurants to expand beyond their interior spaces and get our community back to work sooner, all while keeping the patrons and employees socially distant and safe.”
