Eating in Conway streets one step closer to reality
Conway, S.C. —
Call it take-out dining to the extreme.
Conway leaders are one step closer to helping you eat in the street. Conway Downtown Alive drafted a plan in November proposing businesses along city-owned streets have the option to take up to two parking spaces and convert them to an outdoor dining area.
It would only happen along city-owned streets, like Laurel, Elm and 2nd Streets.
The city's Planning Commission approved the proposed amendment to allow for outdoor patios, with a few exceptions, said Planning Director Mary Catherine Hyman.
The commission asked when a parklet is filed, the property post a sign to make others aware of the request.
Hyman said the plan will now go before City Council February 5th for first reading.
