The Pella City Council passed an ordinance that will allow businesses to have outdoor seating in the downtown district. Planning and Zoning Director George Wesselhoft says that the project started with the Chamber of Commerce, and that the goal was to give Pella a more European feel. Business owners have to apply for a permit and the additional furniture on the sidewalk has to allow 5 feet of open sidewalk. Only tables and chairs are allowed.
