Sidewalk Cafes in Downtown

We encourage the installation of sidewalk seating to increase public space use, enjoyment, and safety. With proper design and management, seating can also be a great way to encourage walking, add vitality to the street, and promote local economic development. Sidewalk cafés and tables-and-chairs setups are integral forms of right-of- way seating.

Sidewalk cafes are encouraged in Renton’s Downtown. Click here for the guidelines to assist property and business owners in setting them up.
