Economic Development

We are excited to announce an Outdoor Temporary Patio Pilot Project.

The Town of Provost is relaxing rules around temporary outdoor patios and retail spaces so businesses can create more space for customers. The Town of Provost has created these Guidelines to allow businesses to expand or create temporary outdoor patios or retail spaces in private parking areas or within public property.

 

 

Temporary patios and retail spaces will be allowed to operate:

  1. Year round for private property.
  2. Year round for public parks, municipally owned parcels (that are not parking spaces), and reserve parcels that have received additional approval from the Town as the landowner.
  3. Annually, from April 1 to November 4 or until winter road conditions arise as determined by the Town, whichever is sooner, for sidewalks and municipally owned off-street parking spaces that have received additional approval from the Town as the landowner.
  4. Annually, from April 30 to September 30 or until winter road conditions arise as determined by the Town, whichever is sooner for on-street parking spaces.

The Town will provide 24 hours notice of winter road conditions to applicable businesses. *This date may be revised if there is an early spring.

To participate in this program, begin by designing your temporary outdoor patio or retail space in accordance with these Guidelines. You must submit a Project Declaration Form before you start work creating your temporary patio or retail space. Along with the Project Declaration Form, you will be required to provide a plan or drawing of your intended space. If you are proposing to use sidewalks, public parks, municipally owned parcels, reserve parcels, on-street parking spaces or municipally owned off-street parking spaces (“public property”), you will also be required to provide proof of insurance and wait for confirmation from the Town that this is satisfactory. In some situations, as described in these Guidelines, you may also need prior approval from the Town’s Planning and Development before you can start work.

Once you have obtained any required planning approvals and approval of your insurance and your Project Declaration Form, you can set up your temporary patio or retail space. Before you can begin using this space, you must have an inspection by Provost Fire Department. Please contact The Town 780-753-2261 if you have any questions.
