Ordinance Amendment Comments
The public right-of-way is for pedestrian and vehicle traffic and utilities. Private vendors are creating obstructions using tables, motor-assisted scooters, tents, games and signs and these obstructions create significant liability concerns.
The ordinance amendments prohibit the business activity on the public right-of-way.
The proposed ordinance amendments:
- Prohibit use of public property for rental or services of goods
- Prohibit display of motor-assisted scooters for rental in the right-of-way
- Prohibit the riding of motor-assisted scooters on sidewalks in a business district.
- Make it unlawful for someone to block any portion of the sidewalk and render it impassable
