thank-you...you've articulated in one post what I could not in several.

It is completely backwards. We should be encouraging new cafes and restaurants to open in our city and new neighbourhood patios, not less.

To illustrate, the first photo above is looking down the side street of the building in the second photo. Small patio on the side corner. The second building shown in two pics faces the main street with a patio and small parking lot at the corner with another side street. If city hall is worried about these small patios making noise at night (though, I'm not sure how a patio could ever drown out Main St) simply restrict their evening hours to 8 or 9pm. Instead, we throw up more roadblocks to new business and then wonder why the central city neighbourhoods lack the quality of life of Westdale or Locke South.
