On Monday, April 5, Public Works crews installed temporary patios at downtown businesses. These patios will be in place until mid-October this year. In 2020, city council and city staff worked with downtown businesses to create these outdoor spaces as a way to help businesses generate income throughout pandemic related capacity restrictions. The city is offering these patios again as an option in 2021. After this season, any business owners who wish to have a patio yearly will be required to request a permit.
