Now that the Village and State have reached Phase 5 with no COVID restrictions, outdoor dining and tents are no longer permitted. Outdoor dining remains permitted for establishments that possess a special use permit specifically for outdoor dining and for restaurants in the downtown area that were previously permitted. In addition, all temporary and non-permitted signs must also be removed. These signs may also include banners, feather signs, a-frame signs, etc. If you would like to learn how to obtain a permit, please contact the Village of Skokie's Building & Zoning Division at (847) 933-8223.
