Temporary Licenses of Occupation Print Article Font Size
A Temporary License of Occupation (TLO) gives legal authority for a business, individual, or group to utilize public property in order to carry out specific activities.
 
These activities can include outdoor restaurants, bar patios, sidewalk cafes, merchant displays, food trucks, raffle stands, charity barbeques, street performers, faires, parades, weddings, sporting events and Farmers Markets.
 
These all require the use of public space such as sidewalks, boulevards, rights of way, parks and parking spaces.  As these public spaces were built by and for the public through taxation, businesses and occupiers of these public spaces must come with terms and conditions, which may include payment for the use of the space.
