THU AUG 26 The Future of Outdoor Dining! 6 PM

Join EVCC and Village Preservation for a conversation about the future of outdoor dining and the use of public space! While most residents understood the need for an outdoor dining program during the height of the pandemic emergency, there are many concerns about the program, its expansion, and what permanent implementation might mean.

We’ll review our neighborhood’s existing zoning, the changes the City seeks to make in order to make the outdoor dining program permanent, what details the City has shared about these plans, and opportunities for public input into this process. Watch the replay!
