LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Restaurants in Louisville will be allowed to expand outdoor dining into parking areas under a new Metro Government ordinance. City officials say it will ease strain on restaurants that have limited indoor seating during the pandemic. Restaurants will submit plans to the city for approval. The dining areas must be adjacent to the sidewalk and on streets that have a speed limit of 35 miles per hour or less. Restaurants will be responsible for providing their own furniture as well as required barriers for public safety.
