Letter: Yes, residents and visitors love NOTL's patios

Dear editor:

This is in response to Samuel Young's request for input from restaurants on keeping patios on Queen Street, ("Let's make NOTL patios permanent," letter, Oct. 8).

We are restaurant owners on Queen Street and found that the public feedback with respect to the patios has been overwhelmingly positive.

We were told by people it adds a vibrance/ ambiance (with respect to dining) to the town that it did not had previously. It gives visitors and locals a new perspective while dining in our town.

This was an initiative by town staff and is an idea that residents seem to love.

Hopefully staff and council have received enough positive feedback from residents and businesses alike that they will approve these to remain until next year.

It will also be very helpful as a whole to the street as we continue through this pandemic to another summer, which might not be much different than this summer.
