It's Memorial Day Weekend, and, after witnessing lengthy discussions about Warren Street Shared Usage 2022 in the Common Council Tourism & Events Committee and reporting on the recommendations the committee made to the mayor's office, Gossips expected to see the Department of Public Works out Thursday and yesterday positioning the cement blocks for outdoor dining in the parking lanes on Warren Street. That didn't happen.
An article in the Register-Star today explains why: "Street barriers will return June 20." It appears from the article that the mayor's office couldn't simply accept the carefully considered recommendations of the Tourism & Events Committee but found it necessary to rethink the whole situation, including researching and debating what constitutes a restaurant having its own outdoor space.
