La Mirada Approves Temporary Outdoor Commercial Program


The City of La Mirada has established temporary regulations to permit the outdoor operation of gyms, fitness centers, personal grooming/care and places of worship, while complying with safety guidelines established by the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health. This program is similar to another business-friendly program previously approved by the City that allows for all restaurants to provide outdoor dining in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

This most recent action taken by the City is in the form of an executive order approved by the city manager.  An item affirming the Emergency Temporary Outdoor Commercial Program will be on the City Council’s agenda for consideration at next Tuesday’s meeting.  The provisions of the program are in line with recent changes to the County’s Public Health Order. The ETOCP allows La Mirada businesses the opportunity to temporarily conduct supplemental qualifying operations outdoors, immediately outside of their business establishment or places of worship on private sidewalks, walkways, open areas and parking lots.

To participate in the program, qualifying businesses must complete and submit an ETOCP registration form to the City for review and approval.  The form is available on the City’s website and at City Hall.  There is no fee for this program, though certain temporary structures will require building permits

The City’s ETOCP will be in effect for as long as the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health requires the implementation of safety protocols in response to COVID-19.
