“The use of the public right-of-way for outdoor dining requires a comprehensive analysis that includes feedback from all stakeholders and careful consideration of all that we have learned since inception of the program,” Stern said. “That is why City Council directed City staff to thoroughly study this as a long-term option.

“Open air feasting on walkways, decks and other public right-of-ways isn’t impacted by this change, and is generally accessible all through Manhattan Beach.”
