A plan is currently in the works to close the 100 block of King Street to car traffic on weekends to turn the area near the waterfront into a pedestrian boulevard. At the Waterfront Commission meeting yesterday (Tuesday), city staff presented the timeline for when that closure could happen.
City staff said they are currently coordinating with stakeholders — like businesses along King Street that rely on the street not only for visitors but loading and unloading goods — to evaluate concerns about the proposal.
“We want to come back to the public in December,” staff said. “We want to come forward with solutions, not just identify that we know there are problems.”
The City Council is scheduled to review the pilot proposal in January. If approved, design and preparation work would continue through April, which is when the pilot would launch. The closures would run from April to October, after which staff would analyze the results of the pilot and determine next steps.
