Cumberland updating sidewalk cafe bylaws
Mayor Leslie Baird (centre) says the sidewalk cafe pilot project was very successful
The Village of Cumberland is updating its bylaws around Sidewalk Cafes. The cafes were launched as a pilot project last year.
Mayor Leslie Baird says the pilot project was very successful. The businesses that took part identified a couple of areas that could be improved.
She says one of the key issues that came up was accessibility to the cafes. She adds there were a few issues brought up through the pilot project – but not too many.
Baird says she hopes to see more businesses apply to have sidewalk cafes in the Village of Cumberland.
