Boulevard Encroachment Permit Request Form
**Announced by the Province on April 1, a provincewide emergency brake will be effective Saturday, April 3, 2021, at 12:01 a.m. and is intended to remain in place for at least four weeks. As part of this emergency break, outdoor dining is currently prohibited.
The purpose of the Encroachment Permit By-law is to provide temporary relief from the Sidewalk Patio and Merchandise Display By-law, providing additional opportunities for physical distancing for the health, safety and well-being of persons, as a direct result of COVID-19. Anyone wishing to use the municipal sidewalk to expand a patio or display merchandise available in a retail store is required to obtain permission from the municipality prior to using the sidewalk for such purposes.
A Permit is valid from the date of issue until March 31, 2022, or until such time as the COVID-19 orders that are currently in place that effect food establishments and retailers have been lifted by the Province and Simcoe Muskoka District Heath Unit, or this temporary Boulevard Encroachment By-law is repealed by Council, whichever is the earlier date.
Additional conditions will apply to Boulevard Encroachment Permit holders that extend operations into the winter months as contained within the approved permit. The Town will not be held responsible for any damages that may result in the operation of a boulevard encroachment or from conducting winter maintenance. The use of portable heaters must meet the TSSA guidelines, and an inspection is required by Fire Services prior to their use.
**Please allow a minimum of one week to process your application.
