Outdoor Dining update – “Streetary” program

Posted on August 15, 2022


San Rafael’s restaurants have long been a source of pride and appreciation for our community, and the rapid rise and success of the City’s sidewalk adjacent ‘Streetary’ dining concept came as no surprise to many in recent years. The current guidelines that were implemented during COVID-19 have since been analyzed and closely discussed with City staff and local businesses owners, who mutually designed formalized guidelines for ‘Streetaries’ moving forward.

On June 21, 2022, the City Council approved the draft Streetary Program Guidelines that will take effect beginning December 1, 2022 and replace the current temporary emergency COVID-19 parklet arrangements. Earlier this month the City has sent out additional information to businesses who currently have Streetaries. The revisions to the ordinance and a resolution to the fees will be brought to the City Council at the two September meetings. Questions? Reach out to the city’s streetary team members at
