Restaurants and bars in Milton can now apply for the 2024 seasonal patio program.

The program allows businesses to extend and operate patios in designated areas from May 18 to Oct. 31.

This year the patios will open on the Victoria Day weekend and coincide with the opening of the farmers’ market on Main Street.

The goal of the program is to promote economic activity in the post-COVID world and provide customers more opportunities to enjoy their favourite places to socialize and relax.

“The Town of Milton always aims to support local businesses,” said Andy Scott, Milton’s Director Strategic Initiatives & Business Development. “We’re excited to collaborate with our partners at the Milton Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Milton Business Improvement Area to relaunch the program. We encourage new and returning businesses to apply for a temporary patio permit and look forward to the 2024 season.”

Town staff evaluate all applications and work closely with applicants to provide guidance, support, and regular updates throughout the entire process. This year applicants are required to submit their application by April 19 to enable approval for May 18.
