Downtown Restaurant Patio Application

March 20, 2018

Hello Downtown Restaurateurs:

The first day of spring is here and soon the sidewalks will be clear of snow, ice, sand and sidewalk patios/cafes will be popping up. Just a Reminder to both New and Existing establishments that in order to operate a Sidewalk Cafe Downtown you are required to submit an application each and every year you wish to operate an Outdoor Cafe that utilizes the City's Sidewalks or any other municipal property.

To facilitate the process, Downtown Sudbury will once again act as 'liaison' for the approval process between the City of Greater Sudbury and Downtown Restaurants.

Please find attached the 2018 Application Package and Form which outlines the various requirements. If you are interested in operating a Sidewalk Cafe in the Downtown for the 2018 season (May 1st  - October 15th) please read the package carefully, complete and return (with required attachments) to our office now located at 115 Larch St. (St. Andrew’s Building) 2 doors down from the main entrance.

Just a reminder that Provincial Regulations ban smoking on all outside Patios and or Sidewalk Cafes.

If you have any question, please do not hesitate to contact us at 705-674-5115.
