Boulevard Cafes and Marketing Review

Posted on November 24, 2014

Public input invited on rules and guidelines for outdoor cafés in Toronto

The City of Toronto is conducting a review of its bylaws that govern outdoor cafés operating on the public right-of-way/sidewalks. The goal is to harmonize existing bylaws and create a single bylaw for all of Toronto, as well as to review fees and establish updated outdoor café guidelines that will help create/maintain safe, comfortable and universally accessible cafés and sidewalks.

A draft outdoor café bylaw and draft guidelines have been developed with the help of input from meetings and surveys conducted with stakeholders earlier this year. The stakeholders included business improvement areas/BIAs, the Ontario Restaurant Hotel and Motel Association, resident associations, boulevard café and marketing permit holders, and the general public.

Public meetings
The City will hold two consultation meetings to obtain public input on the draft bylaw and guidelines:
Thursday, November 27 from 6 to 9 p.m., Metro Hall, Room 308/309, 55 John St.
Tuesday, December 2 from 6 to 9 p.m., East York Civic Centre, council chamber, 850 Coxwell Ave.

Pop-up events
Pop-up events across the city will give local residents additional opportunities to share their opinions/ideas with City staff:
Monday, December 1 from 9:30 a.m. to noon, Montgomery Pool and Health Club, 44 Montgomery Rd.
Tuesday, December 2 from 1 to 3:30 p.m., rotunda, Scarborough Civic Centre, 150 Borough Dr.
Monday, December 8 from 1 to 3:30 p.m., North York Civic Centre, ground floor, 5100 Yonge St.

More information, including the possible addition of more pop-up events, and a mechanism for input/feedback are available at http://www.toronto.ca/haveyoursay.

A report recommending a consolidated outdoor café bylaw and accompanying guidelines is expected to be submitted to the Licensing and Standards Committee in the first half of 2015.
