Pop-up patio pilot extended to 2020

The City of Thunder Bay will be extending the Pop-Up Patio Pilot until 2020 to allow temporary, seasonal patios and seating areas to be built in front of businesses. Interested restaurants are invited to submit an application with the endorsement of the relevant BIA or BA for consideration. Applications will be accepted until April 17 at 4 pm.

The pilot was originally launched in May 2018. Feedback was then gathered from businesses and the public on how to improve the program, resulting in changes to the program this year.
