    • Yes

    Have only visited California Ave while it allowed outdoor dining - the restaurants had done a good job of using the street to spread out their tables and chairs. As of couple days ago we are back in the purple tier and these streets will be closed to traffic from the 29th Jan, that is good news for the restaurants and for their customers. Now we just have to deal with the rain and colder weather.

    The brand new multi-storey car park on Sherman was completely empty three weeks ago at lunchtime, maybe part of its ground floor could be used by some nearby restaurants to serve diners (on tables and chairs) when it is pouring with rain. That ground floor has open walls so the air can circulate but still provides good protection from the rain. 3 or 4 restaurants could fit in that space and California restaurants could take it in turns on rainy days/evenings. Cars would be directed to the next floors.

    Letting the public know which restaurants are serving sit-down meals outside via your bi-weekly email to residents would be good.
