After a more than six hours of discussions about housing, parking and business recovery, Victoria council made several decisions that could change the look and feel of the city this summer.
“Staff will start working right away on options for cafes, options for retailers to sell their goods and services outside and to make all of downtown feel like an open air market for the whole summer,” Helps said during a press conference Friday.
Council also passed temporary bylaw adjustments to allow businesses to sell items in front of their shops and set up tables and chairs outside restaurants, coffee shops and bakeries.
Businesses will also be able to use public spaces or squares adjacent to their facility.
i place this here because i do not see the dvba comment on this item.
they speak for downtown businesses. what do they say about this? do businesses have the staff to man not only their stores but sidewalk displays too?
