WALLINGFORD — Summer outdoor dining options may soon include a new downtown brewery on Wallace Avenue.

On Thursday, the Town Council ordinance committee proposed amending the town code on seasonal outdoor sidewalk dining. 

The full council is slated to vote on the amendment Tuesday after a public hearing.

Outdoor restaurant dining is allowed on certain downtown public sidewalks from April 1 through October 31.

The boundary covers the northern sidewalk of Center Street from North Main Street east to Wallace Avenue, but does not clearly include Wallace Avenue itself.

The amendment would add the western side of Wallace Avenue from Center Street to where the road ends.

Councilor Christopher Shortell, ordinance committee co-chairman, said the proposal was prompted by a request from Center Street Brewing Co. to Mayor William W. Dickinson Jr.

The brewery, which opened March 30, is close enough to the existing area that already allows seasonal outdoor dining, Dickinson said.

“It would seem appropriate,” he added.
