In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, and the changes in current business operations, the Mt. Pleasant City Commission recently adopted a resolution temporarily authorizing outdoor business activities. These activities include waiving certain standards and fees for outdoor dining, tent and merchandise display permits. Therefore, beginning June 12 – September 30, 2020, Broadway Street between Main and University Streets will be closed for restaurant and merchant use.
To allow for proper social distancing, merchants will be able to utilize the space directly in front of their business and possibly adjacent frontage of service providers who will not be using their outdoor space. Although license fees are being waived, businesses must still apply for an outdoor dining license or merchandise display license.
Even though this street closure has the possibility of lasting until September 30, 2020, staff will review the continuation of this outdoor dining and merchandising option every two weeks.
