The outdoor display and incidental seating ordinance allows businesses in commercial districts to promote services and merchandise along storefronts. In order to improve commercial activity in the City, a uniform set of standards were established to allow outdoor display and seating. The rules are designed to protect pedestrian circulation, enhance aesthetics, and promote economic development.
The approval process for outdoor display and seating areas requires the completion of an application
as well as submission of a basic site plan. An applicant guide
is also available to assist applicants through the process.
