The boundaries were chosen in order to accommodate the greatest amount of businesses within a similar streetscape. There is a natural geographic border north of Hendon St. and the Streetscape changes in this area. We encourage the businesses in the outlying areas to look into forming a BIA that can better serve the businesses and communities in those areas.
The proposed dates of lane closures are from May through October 2021 (targeted dates subject to external conditions).
Important Dates For Registration
February 26 – March 26 2021
Period 1 Registration for CafeTO
March 27 – May 2021
Period 2 Registration for CafeTO
*Note: The expected date of curb lane closures by the City for Period 1 is May and for Period 2 is June, and will go until October 2021. In order to take full advantage of the patio season, we recommend registering as soon as possible in order to secure curb lane cafes.
One of our main goals is to help businesses get the resources they need to ensure their summer patio is a success. In addition to resources used towards the beautification of the curb lane patios, the BIA will be able to help restaurants gain access to other resources they may need.
For curbside pick-up orders, the plan is to designate side streets for curbside pick-up parking.
When there is limited impact on residential properties, it is considered to be included in the CafeTO plan.
