Restaurant Temporary Expansion Information for Re-opening

On May 25, 2020, Governor Polis announced that restaurants could begin re-opening following strict guidelines set forth by the State. The City has worked diligently with our economic partners to prepare for a streamlined application process to facilitate this process and provide a way for restaurants to expand their premises to meet social distancing criteria. All restaurants should carefully review the criteria for reopening before proceeding. 

Restaurants need to apply for permits to expand their premises into parking lots, alleyways, and sidewalks.

  • All restaurants should complete the City's online Restaurant Expansion Request form to apply for permission to expand their premises
  • Restaurants with liquor licenses should first download the State Report of Changes form that is required to modify their liquor licensed premises and upload that application along with all required documents on the City's online Restaurant Temporary Expansion Request for COVID form.

City staff will review the information and forms submitted and contact restaurants with questions. Because City facilities are still closed and many employees are working remotely, it is recommended that questions be emailed to:  city_clerk' and staff will respond as quickly as possible to all inquiries.

For the most current updates and information regarding licensing changes due to COVID-19, please go to the Colorado Department of Revenue Liquor Enforcement Division webpage.

In the State of Colorado, obtaining a retail liquor license is a dual process beginning at the local level which requires review and approval from the Local Licensing Authority prior to review by the State Liquor Enforcement Division. The Local Licensing Authority holds monthly meetings at which applications are reviewed and then approved or denied.


The City of Longmont's Local Licensing Authority (commonly referred to as the Liquor Licensing Authority or LLA) is the Municipal Judge. The Licensing Coordinator serves as the official secretary to the Local Licensing Authority and receives and processes all liquor license applications. The Licensing Coordinator is available to answer questions you have about the process and to provide clarification about the requirements and fees but is not able to provide you with legal advice.

Agendas for any meeting of the LLA are posted at the west entrance to the Civic Center at 350 Kimbark St., Longmont, Colorado. They are also posted on the City's website for the public's convenience.
