TC Board Meeting: Platform Cafe Discussion Sent Back for Review

Tonight at the Traverse City Board Meeting, city leaders decided to send the Platform Cafe discussion back for review.

A proposed rule would leave sidewalks four feet wide for people to walk on in hopes of alleviating sidewalk congestion.

Some commissioners feel that the wording in the proposal allows restaurants to place a fenced dining platform in on-street parking spaces.

At tonight’s meeting people in wheelchairs spoke up saying they feel the sidewalk is being taken away from them.

A committee will now review the public space.
