Engagement feedback shows support for on-street patios in the downtown for all business types.
In response, several streets in the downtown have been identified for potential on-street patio areas. Each of these streets have been examined in detail to find all areas where patios could be considered for a patio permit.
A permitted patio map has been created to identify "on-street patio areas" taking in to account the use of the space, traffic control, access to alleyways and turning radius of busses and trucks.
Further feedback is needed on the location of "on-street patio areas" to better understand business support or concerns with the potential location of patios within these identified areas.
Due to the concentration of restaurants and the restrictions that traffic movement has on on-street patio availability, only the Wyndham Street and Macdonell Street intersection is being considered for a spring to fall seasonal road closure.
The boundaries of the 2020 closure have been amended. Further feedback is needed to better understand business support or concerns with the potential seasonal road closure boundaries.
