The City of Prince George is hoping to encourage seasonal patios for the 2022 year by improving the application process.

The new process will be released early next year.

“In order to encourage the continued use of seasonal street and sidewalk patios, which were so well received by both residents and businesses, the City is refining this procedure to ensure interested businesses are ready for the start of patio season in 2022,” said Melissa Barcellos, Manager of Economic Development.

“We will be consulting with the businesses that established seasonal patios and aim to make the application as easy and affordable as possible.”

Businesses that currently have seasonal patios are expected to take them down by October 31.

City Council also voted to permit the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch (LCRB) to allow “liquor primary” establishments to have temporarily expanded service areas until June 1, 2022, to enable physical distancing between patrons.

Businesses that are operating under Temporary Expanded Service Area regulations can apply for permanent changes to their liquor licenses if they want to operate their seasonal patio past June 1, 2022.
