Ludington to consider change in downtown outdoor dining rules

March 10, 2014

LUDINGTON — Ludington City Council will hold a first reading tonight of two proposed amendments that allows a change in downtown outdoor dining regulations. The amendments to the city’s code would allow a downtown business located on a corner that does not have parking spaces in front of the business to establish an outdoor dining area away from the building, as long as it doesn’t obstruct pedestrian traffic.

Currently, businesses that wish to have an outdoor dining area must establish it immediately adjacent to the building.

At its March 4 meeting, the planing commission passed a motion to recommend the city council adopt the proposed amendment to the zoning ordinance. The proposed amendment would eliminate conflicts between the city code and the zoning ordinance. The buildings and license committee is also recommending city council adopt both ordinances.

City council meets at 6:30 p.m. at city hall, 400 S. Harrison St.
