The purpose of this manual is to support businesses in establishing a Café while balancing the mobility needs of everyone who uses and travels in the right-of-way: people walking, biking, driving, riding transit, or moving goods/freight. This document serves as comprehensive resource for all procedures, standards, and guidelines affecting physical changes in the public right-of-way. The design manual includes the various café typologies, traffic and pedestrian safety requirements and other creative solutions to address the challenges and opportunities for Outdoor Dining.
