Public consultation on Toronto sidewalk cafés and marketing displays – January 31, 2019

Posted on January 23, 2019

Public consultation on Toronto sidewalk cafés and marketing displays

The City of Toronto is hosting a public consultation to obtain input on the Sidewalk Cafés and Marketing Displays Bylaw Review. The review aims to harmonize existing bylaws so that consistent standards are applied across the city.

The public is invited to attend the consultation on Thursday, January 31 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in Committee Room 4 at Toronto City Hall (100 Queen St. W.).

At the consultation, participants will have the opportunity to provide their input on proposed regulations, including updated fees, accessibility issues and new standards for marketing displays and sidewalk cafés (for example, curbside and parklet cafés).

The proposed regulations have been informed by earlier, extensive consultations with the public and stakeholders. Since 2014, input has been collected from more than 30 consultations and public meetings, two online surveys, and an on-site survey that collected information at sidewalk cafés and marketing display locations.

Input obtained from this final consultation will be used to inform the harmonized bylaw that City Council will consider this spring.
