The City of Marina recently announced new relaxed guidelines for businesses conducting operations outdoors.
“In an effort to help businesses meet the requirements of the Monterey County Health Department with regards to the COVID-19 local emergency, outdoor use standards will be relaxed according to the following guidelines. This is a temporary action that is strictly during the COVID-19 pandemic and will terminate when the COVID-19 local emergency is terminated by the City Council or is rescinded by the City Manager. We want to work cooperatively with local businesses to provide basic guidelines to help these establishments stay open while protecting public health and safety.” Community Development Department, City of Marina
In order to help facilitate each business owner through the permitting process, Monica Kim will be working with our business community to help them through the process. Many of these might be beauty salons, barber shops, merchandise retailers, etc…
“I’ll be working with every case in the order that it is received to ensure I can steer people away from bankruptcy and help create plans to keep money going into your businesses.” – Monica Kim, City of Marina
Monica also wanted to remind our local business community that any business relocating outside, whether that is restaurants, beauty, fitness, or merchandise retailers, must have a permit. And she wants to help those that are struggling through the process.
Below, you will find links to the downloadable PDF’s provided by the city of Marina which include a number of great resources for our local guidelines.
