The State of New York has not permitted the reopening of bars and/or restaurants at this time. The Town is accepting temporary outdoor dining and canopy/tent applications without fees in order to facilitate business openings once this occurs.
In preparation of NYS allowing bars and/or restaurants to reopen, the Town of Islip has established a
Temporary Outdoor Dining Permit Application
Canopy / Tent Permit Application Temporary Outdoor Dining
with no fees. The online fillable application(s) are located on the Town of Islip website. Applicants will need to include a dimensioned sketch of the proposed temporary outdoor table/seating plan with their application (if submitting an application electronically, please scan a copy of the dimensioned sketch and email it with your application).
The department staff shall contact applicants if further information is required to approve an application. Applicants will be notified via email once the Planning Department has approved a permit request. The permit approval will be forwarded to the Town Fire Prevention Office to schedule an onsite inspection of the installed outdoor table/seating and canopy/tents (if applicable) prior to operating.
If you have any questions, please call the Planning office at 631-224-5450.
