“The fate of a Balboa Island restaurant’s request to build an outdoor patio on the public sidewalk is coming to the Newport Beach City Council on Tuesday.” – Daily Pilot

The Village Inn is looking to build a 200 sq ft patio. At the moment, the section of the sidewalk contains bike racks and they would have to be relocated at The Inn’s expense if approved. The Village Inn has been a LONG time business on the island and supporter of local businesses like my own. It was originally established in 1933… That is 84 years and counting. Not too many businesses on the island can boast such a longevity. How do you feel about this patio? Please comment and share the post below! – Steve Roose
