City may ban tables downtown

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa City City Council will discuss a memorandum at its work session May 16 regarding the prohibition of tables set up on the Pedestrian Mall. Assistant City Manager Dale Helling and administrative assistant Kathi Johansen sent the document to City Manager Tom Markus on Thursday.

Now, tables are allowed to be set up if they are for "noncommercial" purposes, but city officials said they believe requests to set up tables on the Ped Mall and downtown Iowa City sidewalks are taking up more and more time.

City staffers also recommended tables not be allowed outside the Chauncey Swan parking ramp during the Iowa City Farmers' Market.
