Monmouth Seeks More Inviting Downtown

Aug 6, 2012

Monmouth will use its broad sidewalks around the town square to make the area more inviting while offering an opportunity for business expansion.

Community Director Paul Schuytema says the cafe seating ordinance will allow restaurants to provide outdoor seating on the public right-of-way on those broad sidewalks.

He says, “In light of the development that we're trying to do ordinance like this becomes a really nice recruitment tool to bring restaurants that we don't yet have in the downtown into some of the areas that are going to be developed.”
