Public Space for Restaurants

On May 28, 2020 the City Council introduced legislation – Int. 1957 – to require DOT to designate open spaces for temporary outdoor dining areas and establish a permitting system for those areas. Click here for a copy of the legislation.

As you’ll see in the bill, BIDs may have significant concerns about the potential use of plaza space and relaxed restrictions on vendor activity.

Please feel free to share your individual concerns or ideas on this proposal with us or with our Councilmember Stephen Levin here
