Durham Region could be seeing more outdoor patios open up this summer. In Bowmanville and Newcastle, councilors are discussing a pilot project that would permit certain restaurants to turn on-street parking into patio areas for food and beverage service. A request was made at last week's meeting to see if a trial run can be set up for this summer. Concerns were raised about possible interference with streetscaping, and other community improvement plans.
