Outdoor Dining

Design Guidelines
The City of Ludington is pleased to offer restaurants in Downtown Ludington the option of utilizing the public sidewalk as outdoor dining areas. Outdoor dining gives restaurant patrons an amenity that has become an increasingly popular feature within the downtown area.

While the City has encouraged the use of outdoor dining arrangements, restaurant operators must be mindful of 2 important considerations: the safety and flow of pedestrian traffic, and the visual appropriateness within Downtown Ludington.
