— While details need to be worked out, members of Thiensville’s
Village Board were receptive Dec. 7 to permitting the cheel to
offer seating on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant.
owner of the cheel is asking the village for permission to
provide seating in the right-of-way for as many as nine people.
The area would be divided – perhaps with a rope or small fence –
and individuals using the sidewalk still would have more than 8
feet of space.
restaurant, which features cuisine from Nepal, has been open for
about 1 1/2 years at 105 S. Main St. Daily did extensive
renovations to the historic building at Main Street and Buntrock
Avenue to convert a building that was on the verge of being
condemned into a restaurant that has attracted enthusiastic
reviews and steady business.
make Thiensville feel more walkable,” Daily said as he spoke to
trustees as they met as the Committee of the Whole.
among trustees centered on details, such as how the area would
be divided from the rest of the sidewalk and whether tables and
chairs would be removed at night. While a formal vote was not
taken, several trustees said they were “all for it.” Nobody
spoke in opposition.
Many of the
details related to the sidewalk seating must be worked out. For
instance, the restaurant likely will pay a fee to access the
space as part of an agreement with the village, but those
details have not been worked out.
Many of the
details will be worked out as the proposal goes to the village’s
Planning Commission. Discussion there will be followed by formal
Village Board action.
