Question of the Day — Downtown Outdoor Seating

Issue: Sidewalk seating proposal revamped: Only businesses serving alcohol would need permanent barriers/Tom Greene, Coeur d’Alene Press

More Info: State law currently requires any business that serves alcohol to have a barrier, but it doesn’t have to be permanent. City employees have received complaints that restaurant patrons are pushing their seats out into the sidewalk and blocking pedestrian traffic. The law requires there be a 42-inch clearance.

Question: Would outdoor seating for restaurants, coffee shops and bars make downtown more appealing or less to you?
