Sandwich Boards The Happy Ending – May 18, 2010

Ann Arbor City Council voted to approve an amendment to the sidewalk occupancy permit to allow downtown businesses to use sandwich boards.

All businesses within the DDA boundaries are eligible to apply for a permit for the use of sandwich boards beginning June 1, 2010. If the permit is for a sandwich board only, not for other sidewalk occupancy use such as sidewalk cafes, sale racks, etc., the fee is $50.
