Westlake Village, CA: Last night, the Westlake Village City Council voted to extend resolutions that will continue to allow select businesses to operate outdoors in permitted temporary areas.
The City Council vote extends resolutions which were set to expire today, through January 28, 2021 that allow for the temporary outdoor operation of select business sectors such as restaurants, hair salons, and gyms, and is consistent with Los Angeles County Health Officer Orders.
Several Westlake Village businesses are currently utilizing the temporary permits, which allow them to continue limited operations outdoors in the wake of forced indoor business closures caused by COVID-19. These include several restaurants, gyms and a dance studio.
“These are very difficult times for businesses, and we want to do whatever we can to support them right now,” explains Westlake Village Mayor Kelly Honig. “To further assist our city-based businesses, the temporary permits do not have fees associated with them,” she added.
“We are so grateful to the City of Westlake Village for extending the outdoor permits that allows our dancers to participate safely, bringing much-needed physical, mental and emotional wellness,” commented Alexia Liavas, owner of Aspire Dance Studio. “Over the last six months, our mission to nurture and feed the soul, body and mind through dance, has never been more important for the well-being of these kids. We are so excited to be able to continue to do so,” added Liavas.
To date, the City of Westlake Village has issued COVID-19 Restaurant Outdoor Dining Permits to The Shoppes development covering all of their eating establishments and to six other establishments around the City.
Additionally, the City has issued six COVID-19 Outdoor Operation Permits for other business types throughout the City. The City of Westlake Village is committed to helping local businesses and this is just one example of that commitment.
