As Masscahsusetts reopens the economy, many restaurants will be seeking to temporarily add or expand existing outdoor seating. The Town of Hadley has developed the following guidance to assist restaurants in reopening and all permit fees related to the reopening process will be waived.  

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts will be publishing guidance and updates throughout the reopening process - . All State requirements must be met, as they cannot be waived or reduced by the town.
