On July 23, 2020, the City of Ojai announced an order allowing businesses to use outside areas. The order is intended to allow businesses that were impacted by the State’s order, which closed the indoor operations of many businesses within Ventura County, to reopen. Businesses can apply through the City for a temporary use permit and submit a plan to operate in an outdoor expansion area.

The City is waiving fees for these permits in an effort to help support local businesses that have been impacted by the closure orders. For more information, please visit ojaicity.org or call the City’s Community Development Department at (805) 646-5581 ext. 112.
