Lower fees, generous space for pedestrians and permission to stay open year-round are among the sweeping changes approved Wednesday by the transportation committee to rules governing Ottawa’s sidewalk patios.

The committee also voted to make streetside spots a permanent fixture to the city’s urban fabric, paving the way for the possibility of more micro-patios replacing on-street parking spaces.
