In response to yesterday’s release by the Governor’s office on sidewalk cafés, the City of Jamestown is communicating to businesses about the permit process for receiving a sidewalk café permit. Businesses are encouraged to use private outdoor space, as long as they follow the guidelines set forth by the Governor’s office. If businesses are interested in using public sidewalks or other adjacent public spaces for outdoor dining, they are encouraged to call or email the Department of Development at 716-483-7541 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The City is currently working with the City Council on a more complete outdoor dining plan, which will include use additional use of public space, such as parking spaces, and legislation allowing food trucks and trailers. . More information will be available next week.
