Outdoor dining Vernon Street decking

Enjoy more outdoor dining in Downtown Roseville

New outdoor decking has been installed along Vernon Street providing larger outdoor dining areas for downtown restaurants. Indoor dining is prohibited under the state's current public health order.

The City worked with the Downtown Roseville Partnership to fund and install the decking allowing restaurants to safely serve more customers.

This is an addition to the changes in zoning regulations the City made in May to allow restaurants to temporarily add or expand outdoor dining.
