To Our Valued Local Business Owner,

The necessary but painful closure of many Essex Junction businesses has been hard on everyone, but it’s been particularly tough for our local eating and drinking establishments. Adding to the problem is the uncertainty of when you’ll be allowed to seat and serve customers inside your establishment and how new social distancing requirements will impact your business.

The Essex Junction Village government has limited resources, but we’d like to help all of us get through these difficult times. For that reason, we’d like to know how the Covid-19 pandemic has affected your business, and we’d like to hear your ideas about how we might help.  These are some of the ideas we're exploring:

Question Title

* 1. Encourage more outdoor eating by suspending local ordinances that hinder outdoor seating, eating, and beverage consumption. Good Idea?

Question Title

* 2. Close off sidewalks and/or parking spaces and/or other public spaces, possibly some streets, and install chairs and tables for customers of nearby eating and drinking establishments.  Good idea?

Question Title

* 3. Creating ‘pop-up’ events with tables, chairs, planters, and (possibly) entertainment that circulate to different locations around the Town Center and Village Center.  Good idea?

Question Title

* 4. Please let us know if any of these ideas appeal to you and, more important, please tell us your ideas for how we might help. We’d also very much like to hear how your business is doing in these difficult times.  Please use the space below.

* 5. Business name
