Report says no to on-street cafes outside downtown

A report from Cliff Curtis, the region’s works commissioner, calls for there to be no on-street cafes on regional roads outside of the downtown core following a request from the City of Oshawa for more information on the matter.

However, the report’s recommendation was not voted on at the latest meeting of the works committee after Councillor John Neal requested that it be tabled so that city and regional staff can meet to discuss the future of such a program.

The report says that on-street cafes outside of the downtown core can present safety risks.
