In to response to residents and businesses of the Village of East Hampton as they deal with this emergency health crisis and people are being urged to stay home, the Board of Trustees recognizes that some non-essential businesses such as restaurants have been ordered to close, except for take-out, by the Governor’s Executive Order 202.3. Some restaurants owners have voiced their concern that while abiding by the Governor’s Executive Order the public may not know that their restaurant is open for take-out. This temporary suspension will attempt to alleviate that concern.
Effective today, March 25, 2020 until April 8, 2020, the Village suspends it applicable sign laws under Chapter 278 for restaurants to allow, without review by the Village’s Design Review Board, one temporary sign, to be located on the restaurant’s property and not in any public right of way; and that said temporary sign shall be a maximum of 12 sq. ft.
Restaurant shall mean any food establishment as defined under Chapter 278 of the Village Code as a restaurant, take-out food store and retail food store.
