The city of Campbell has joined the street-dining crowd.
From now through Aug. 31, the city’s restaurant-rich downtown stretch will be closed to vehicular traffic to allow for alfresco dining and retail sales.
East Campbell Avenue from Third Street to Ainsley Park near Railway Avenue will be reserved for restaurants, small businesses and pedestrians. The cross streets of First, Second and Third streets and Central Avenue will remain open to traffic.
“Face coverings are required at all times except when eating or drinking at a restaurant,” city officials announced, and restaurants must maintain the 6 feet of distance between tables that is required during this COVID-19 era.
This “Good Clean Fun — Campbell Outdoors” initiative is a joint project of the city, the Campbell Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Campbell Business Association. Businesses that want to expand to the street must apply for a permit with the city’s Public Works Department.
