Attention Montclair Community

Effective immediately, and until rescinded, dine–in restaurants within the City of Montclair will be allowed to temporarily create or expand al fresco (outdoor) dining areas notwithstanding any preexisting limitations imposed under the Montclair Municipal Code. This City of Montclair Community Guidance is based on provisions of Dine–In Restaurants Guidance issued by the California Department of Public Health updated on Thursday, July 2, 2020 and Guidance on Closures of Sectors in Response to Covid–19 by Governor Newsom and the California Department of Public Health published on July 1, 2020.


In efforts to provide more testing opportunities for San Bernardino County residents, community testing events are being held throughout the county. At these testing events, samples are collected by inserting a swab up the nostril or into the mouth to the throat. These samples are then sent to a laboratory for COVID-19 testing. Events are free of charge and do not require health insurance.


On May 14, 2020, the County of San Bernardino launched the COVID-Compliant Business Partnership Program to support local small businesses and help ensure ongoing compliance with State and County health orders and direction.

Weed pickingThe Montclair Fire Department enforces the weed abatement requirements outlined in the Uniform Fire Code and Health and Safety Code.

Each spring and summer, fire inspectors will conduct property inspections for weeds and/or rubbish that present, or potentially present, a fire hazard.  If fire inspectors identify a fire hazard or potential fire hazard, the property owner will receive a violation notice. 

The property owner is required to remove all weeds and rubbish from the property within 30 days from the date of the violation notice.  If the hazard presents an imminent threat, the property owner will be required to abate the violation immediately.

If the property owner fails to abate the violation within the time specified in the violation notice, or in any extension of time that may have been granted, the Fire Department will issue a Notice of Public Nuisance and Intent to Abate.  If the property owner fails to abate the violation within 15 days from the date of the Notice of Public Nuisance and Intent to Abate, the City will contract with a private service to abate the hazard at the property owner's expense, including administrative fees.

If the Fire Department administers the removal of the hazard(s), the property owner will receive a Statement of Abatement Costs. If payment is not received for this statement within 30 days of its issuance a special assessment or lien may be recorded against the property.

If you have any questions concerning the fire safety requirements or our Weed Abatement Program, please call the Montclair Fire Department at (909) 447-3540.
