BANGOR, Maine - Fork? Check. Spoon? Yep. Parka? Good call.
The city of Bangor, the gateway to northern Maine, has approved year-round outdoor dining.
The city council approved a process for restaurants to get permits for outdoor dining spaces on city sidewalks and other public places.
Bangor Downtown Coordinator Caitlin Brook says she anticipates most restaurant owners will wait until spring but the option for winter dining is available. One permit would allow alfresco dining from April to October while the other would run year-round.
