  • Castro Street Closure:  The City has received numerous requests about the possibility of closing Castro Street to support downtown restaurants. City staff is developing a plan to allow outdoor dining on the 100-400 blocks of Castro Street during the summer months once the shelter-in-place order is modified. The goal is to support downtown businesses while meeting social distancing requirements. As part of this planning effort, staff has been talking with the businesses on how best to make this work for them, coming up with potential layouts for tables that maintains social distancing and pedestrian paths, working with VTA on plans to re-route buses and move bus stops, and preparing logistics and operations plans. In conjunction with this work, City staff is also identifying short term parking spaces in City-owned parking lots or garages located behind Castro Street to support the increasing demand for curbside and take out services. Additional information about the plan will be shared through The Briefing and on the City website soon.
