Active Streets for Business allows restaurants and bars to utilize sidewalks, parking lanes and travel lanes to expand seating accommodations. The no-fee, city-wide program has proven popular with the 42 bars and restaurants currently participating in the program.

We heard overwhelmingly from the business community the desire to continue expanded outdoor seating even through the winter months, which is why we have extended the program through March 15, 2021.

Applications and guidelines can be found at milwaukee.gov/dpw.

Bunch of crooks, you are. $25 appeal fee for a $50 fine that wasn't warranted!? Didn't "clear the snow from my sidewalk." Sure buddy, not only was it completely cleared, I received confirmation from the workers who were sent to clear my neighbors sidewalk, "nah man, you're good." Appeal form asks to "attach document" - how am I supposed to attach a video!? Get up to speed and stop robbing people you money grabbing swindlers!
When will the city be addressing their employees regarding the coronavirus and which should be staying home and which should be reporting to work? The employees haven heard anything! This is ridiculous!

All City of Milwaukee businesses, including gas stations, that do not shovel the sidewalks should be fined!
