Outdoor patios on private property Public Hearing (June 30)

Bomber Brewing on Adanac Street has a temporary patio on the street in front of the premises on public property. The proposed zoning changes would allow for an outdoor patio on private property as well.

City Council will be considering temporary bylaw changes to allow for outdoor patios on private property. Under a number of existing zoning schedules, there’s currently no provision that would allow outdoor patios for uses like serving food and beverages, when these uses are allowed indoors.

The Public Hearing is scheduled to start at 3pm on Tuesday, June 30th. If approved, the temporary bylaw changes will be in effect until October 31, 2020.
