This Is Why There May Be Fewer Patios In Toronto Next Summer
Big changes are coming.
As reported by CBC, at yesterday's city hall Disability Access and Inclusion Advisory Committee meeting, Toronto patio owners learned that their sidewalk patios will face a new set of restrictions, according to a new plan.
The draft plan suggests that the sidewalks would have to maintain a 2.1-metre clearway for pedestrians and people with disabilities on main street sidewalks, and 1.8-metres on less busy roads. The plan was created by the city's transportation services.
The plans are expected to be finalized in 2018, and business owners will likely have 2 years to adapt to the new plans, meaning the city will have to wait at least three more years before feeling the effects of the proposed changes.
