Share your input on a City-Wide Patio Program

Posted on Friday, September 16, 2022 01:30 PM

Burlington, Ont.— Sept. 16, 2022 — The City of Burlington is creating new guidelines for patios and temporary tents. An online survey for residents, current patio operators and businesses is open until Oct. 11 at getinvolvedburlington.ca/city-wide-patio-program

The new guidelines will:

  • provide design direction to business operators,
  • think of pedestrians, cyclists and motorists,
  • create consistent rules, regulations and design for patios,
  • create a new, streamlined process to apply for a patio permit for operators.

As part of this work, staff are looking into a City-wide approach to patios. Survey feedback will help City staff to create new guidelines. Staff want to hear stakeholder experiences with restaurant patios and what changes should be made.

The City introduced patios in 2015 under the Pop-Up Patio Program in the downtown core. During the City’s COVID-19 response, the Temporary Outdoor Patios Program was approved by Council and runs until Oct. 31, 2022.
