[ARCHIVED] Town Council Approves Modification of Weekend Street Closure

Town Council Approves Update to Street Closures

Weekend closure area to shorten following business owner feedback


At a special meeting on July 29, 2020 on Zoom, the Danville Town Council voted to modify the area of the weekend closure of Hartz Avenue in the downtown area.

Council members received a briefing from Economic Development Manager Jill Bergman on how the closures are being received by the business community, nearly one month after the weekend change went into effect.  Currently, Hartz Avenue is closed between Diablo Road and School Street from early Friday morning through Sunday evening.


Bergman stated that she has heard from many of the business owners in the area who do not feel the weekend closures are having the beneficial effect many were expecting, and called for the south end closure to be lifted between Prospect Avenue and School Street.  

Council members discussed the issue, then directed staff to shorten the closure area to the block of Hartz Avenue between Diablo Road and Prospect Avenue.  The time period of the closure will remain the same.  The new layout takes effect beginning July 31, 2020.  Other areas closed off to create parklets for outdoor dining are unaffected by this change.

For more information, contact Economic Development Manager Jill Bergman at (925) 314-3369 or jbergman@danville.ca.gov.
