Downtown Aberdeen Sidewalk Ordinance

If you’re selling food or drinks you may have the ability to use a portion of the sidewalk as an outdoor dining area. We strongly encourage sidewalk cafes and exterior dining as they’re one of the biggest trends in a vibrant downtown area. People want to be where people are and it’s hard to miss people enjoying food and drinks outdoors. Please review the ordinance and let us know if you have questions about making this a reality for your business.
