The Arlington County Board approved an administrative process to allow temporary outdoor seating areas (TOSAs) beyond those already permitted.
The County will consider TOSAs that may be in parking lots, sidewalks, and other public spaces. Temporary permits will be valid until the County terminates them. They are subject to periodic review and are revocable at any time, either all at once or on case-by-case basis.
The TOSA application is available online, along with additional guidance.
The County is continuing to permit TOSAs at least through the end of 2021. While the TOSA program may extend even longer, the County currently expects it will extend at least through 2021.
