#AlFrescoGlendale

The Glendale City Council authorized the establishment of the Al Fresco Glendale Program. Phase I of the program allowed local dine-in restaurants to apply to extend to outdoor dining on both public and private properties. It provides businesses with a low-cost alternative to re-establish their customer base to pre-COVID levels by offering outdoor dining alternatives. Phase II extends the program to include retail, personal care and gym businesses with specific guidelines and restrictions.
