Town Supervisor Ciaran Hanna issued an Emergency Order to provide temporary outdoor dining permits for new or expanded outdoor seating to any businesses in the Town of Perinton that qualify. If the guidelines are followed, these permits will remain in effect for the rest of the outdoor dining season.

To apply for a temporary permit, please fill out the form titled, “Application for Temporary New or Expanded Outdoor Seating for Restaurants”, and submit it to Greg Seigfred, Director of Building and Codes, by emailing or by dropping it off at Town Hall (1350 Turk Hill Road). If you have any questions, please contact the office at (585) 223-0770. Please note that this form is not required for outdoor seating already established and authorized by the Town. However, all establishments are subject to State Liquor Authority authorization and State/County Public Health guidelines.

To reopen, all businesses will need to acknowledge the Interim Guidance for Outdoor Take-Out/Delivery Service found here: Guidance for Take-Out/Delivery Service.  You will need to review that document and click a link at the bottom to affirm your understanding of the guidelines to reopen.   Please also review the new requirements set by the State Liquor Authority (SLA), found here:
