As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the loss of indoor dining through much of 2020, the City created a temporary closure of Santa Fe Street between Bradford Avenue and Main Street to provide outdoor dining space for Old Town restaurants. The street closure has been in effect now for nearly 18 months and has generated interest in the community of potentially making the closure permanent. The City has recently completed a parking and traffic circulation study to understand the street closure’s impact on the surrounding community and has been analyzing various conceptual plans of what a permanent street closure would look like and offer in terms of public amenities.
With most COVID-19 restrictions now lifted by the State of California, the City is now seeking the public’s input to determine if the street closure should be made permanent, and if so, what outdoor dining activities and public amenities should be provided within the street closure?
