Council street committee discussion: Eat, drink, sell goods on downtown sidewalks?

The street committee of village council met Tuesday evening to discuss sidewalk use. 

Can a business put signs or merchandise on the sidewalk? What about tables and chairs in front of a restaurant? Can a business that sells alcoholic beverages serve customers while sitting in a cafe-style seating arrangement on the sidewalk?

By Monty Siekerman
The Bluffton Paving Co., bid of $1.3 million for the Klingler Road improvement project was accepted by Ada village council Tuesday night. The Bluffton firm was the lowest of eight bids.

The road improvement will extend from the railroad tracks south to Lima Avenue, about half a mile in length. The old surface will be taken up and the new road will be wider, going from the present 19 foot width to 28 feet.

The project calls for curbing and storm sewer modifications, including a retention basin.
A sidewalk will be installed on the west side for the entire length of the new roadway. Lighting will be added, as well.
