[ARCHIVED] Easing Restaurant Regulations


The City is in the midst of considering the relaxation of requirements to make it easier for most restaurants to open and operate. At the Planning Commission meeting of December 11, 2019, the Planning Commission voted 5-0 recommending the City Council approve a Code Amendment to allow what is termed a “Small Format Restaurant” to operate in the City of Fountain Valley with an over-the-counter approval. Restaurants that may qualify as a Small Format Restaurant would be those with less than 50 seats that have no negative impacts to uses surrounding them such as late hours of operation, a drive-thru, accessory entertainment, or located close to residential properties. On January 21, 2020, the City Council voted unanimously to introduce the new rules with the second reading scheduled for February 4, 2020.
