ORLAND, Calif. - Leaders in one Northern California city are looking to expand outdoor dining and they are considering more than just sidewalk easements.

The City of Orland already issues permits for restaurant owners to expand outdoor dining to sidewalks or parking lots.

Now - they want to add a new patio area in the city. City leaders are looking to possibly put picnic tables and tents on the city parking lot, it is right next to "Pizza Palace" on Fifth street.

The other option would be to block off a portion of the same street and allow customers to eat takeout there.

Action News Now spoke to Orland City Manager Pete Carr, he says nearby restaurant owners suggested this option as a way to drive more business to downtown.

"It won't be as nice as indoor dining but it would be a place that people with a carryout meal can just turn around and walk to. Enjoy their meal, there would be trash service there. The restaurants would cooperatively take care of the busing of the area. The city would provide the trash service itself," Carr said.

Carr adds another option to expanding outdoor dining would be to utilize nearby open areas- such as Library Park on Fourth street.

The park already has picnic tables, trash bins, shade, and parking. If the plan gets the go-ahead, food trucks would also be allowed to park in a portion of the parking lot next to "Pizza Palace."

This proposal will be heard by Orland city council members this coming Monday, if approved it would take effect a few days after that.
