The NMA recently distributed a flyer to Northside businesses outlining  location restrictions that apply to licensed sidewalk vendors.

Sidewalk vendors are crowding our sidewalks and driving business away from Northside shops by illegally locating directly in front of businesses. The flyer (shown below) can be found here.
