ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Many more Albuquerque restaurants are still moving ahead with expanding or creating patio seating for their customers. Mayor Tim Keller announced on Monday that 74 restaurants have now applied for the free permit.

That’s up from 48 on Friday. The permit allows restaurants to temporarily use areas like parking lots or sidewalks to serve customers outdoors.

There is some financial support available to help with expansion. For more information on the City of Albuquerque’s business resources, visit CABQ.gov.
