Municipal Election October 18, 2021 - Candidate Package

In response to recent decisions of the provincial government to move back to Phase 1 of COVID-19 pandemic measures,
the Village has and will continue to consider measures to help our business community through this recent setback.

Effective today, our local restaurants without outdoor patio service are being given the ability to commence outdoor dining, compliant with provincial health orders, on public sidewalks in front of their businesses. 
This decision will mean that temporary parking restrictions during normal business hours will occur by having angle parking spaces blocked off in front of our restaurants who choose to implement outdoor service. 
In such cases parking restrictions will continue to allow for safe and socially distanced pedestrian traffic to continue, as well as ensuring safety for patrons utilizing outdoor dining service.  The Village is working with other restaurants and establishments not along 50th Street who may also wish to offer outdoor service in a manner consistent with provincial health and liquor service requirements.

The Village thanks all downtown businesses for their support of our local restaurants and the temporary parking restrictions. 

The Village will continue to explore all opportunities in support of businesses in our community as
we navigate the uncertain times ahead. 

We appreciate your ongoing support and the true sense of community being demonstrated by all. 
Thank you!
