Blainville eases regulation measures for merchants

As of June 29th and until November 15, 2020, Blainville announced a reduction in municipal regulations relating to the establishment of restaurant terraces as well temporary signage for all traders which will be in force throughout the territory.
“Blainville is proud to participate in the revival of the local economy by giving more room for maneuver to restaurateurs who wish to welcome customers outside and who do not necessarily have the necessary space to do so” announced the mayor of Blainville, Richard Perreault. In fact, this easing of regulations will allow restaurateurs already holding a certificate of occupancy issued by the City, to encroach on private parking spaces.
Restauranteurs who wish to take advantage of an authorization to install a terrace are invited to make their request by email to the town services and country planning. The request must be accompanied by a plan of the terrace, as well as the owner’s authorization form. As for the displays, traders will be able to install a single temporary sign, without time limits or even continuously, until the end of 2020. The authorized temporary signs are as follows:

  1. A banner with a maximum area of 3 m²;
  2. A hinged or pole-type sign of the “sandwich” type with an area not exceeding 1.5 m²;
  3. An advertising flag with a maximum area of 2 m².

A temporary sign may consist of polypropylene, vinyl, plywood, fabric, chipboard and particle board.
