The City of Yellowknife is offering sidewalk patio incentive to eligible property owners.
Restaurant owners, located in designated areas within the downtown, can apply for up to $10,000 towards the installation of a sidewalk patio.
This in an effort by city officials to expand restaurant seating on sidewalks to help them meet physical distancing requirements.
The city is also urging business owners to get creative and contact them directly to discuss alternative ways to facilitate business under the new requirements.
The City is excited to continue to offer the sidewalk patio incentive to eligible property owners. The ability to expand restaurant seating on sidewalks can assist businesses with meeting physical distancing requirements. Visit https://t.co/MsvhqLPIKW for details.
