The Santa Barbara City Council extended the Emergency Economic Recovery Ordinance until March 8, 2022. The ordinance continues the temporary closure of certain streets, on-street parking, and public parking to allow outdoor dining and outdoor business uses in the public right of way or on private property. The City continues to support businesses establish and manage their outdoor business areas as many are still restricted from operating indoors due to the public health orders.
