Business Owners

Business owners with street-front access balance their desire for pedestrian traffic with concerns about public safety, regulatory oversight, and liability. Local government officials can enlist business owners in campaigns to enhance the pedestrian environment and promote neighborhood economic vitality. Topics to address include right-of-way responsibilities; sidewalk permitting processes; cafes; faade improvements; setback requirements; loading docks and loading spaces; and parking.
