Outdoor dining for Main Street mulled

An amendment to the city municipal code that would allow and regulate outdoor dining on one block of the city’s historic Main Street goes before the Garden Grove Planning Commission when it meets on Thursday.

Planners will consider allowing eateries on Main to offer outdoor dining, even if they serve alcohol. The proposed amendment specifies the size and outline of such a seating area, along with a requirement for a partial enclosure in the case of liquor sales.

The panel will meet in the council chambers in the Community Meeting Center, 11300 Stanford Ave., at 7 p.m.
