Temporary Restaurant Patio Program

PatioThe Town's Temporary Restaurant Patio Program provides restaurants with the opportunity to establish or expand patio spaces to take advantage of the summer weather and offer safe outdoor dining areas to their customers.

Subject to the program’s conditions and public health measures, patios can operate in parking lots and adjacent premises on restaurants’ private property, as well as on municipal sidewalks at restaurants located in the downtowns of Alliston, Beeton, and Tottenham.

To assist the local business community in its recovery from the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, no municipal fees will be charged to participating restaurants in 2024.
