December 2017 Downtown Dimension Highlights

Here are my notes from the latest edition of Downtown Dimension:
  • The City Council is buying six pieces of land by the SAP Center that will help ensure enough parking supply for Sharks games while the Autumn Parkway is completed (the road will connect Downtown to I-880 via Coleman).
  • VTA fares will increase by a quarter to $2.25 on regular routes and to $4.50 for express routes. Youth fares are dropping from $1.75 to $1 and day passes are increasing by a dollar to $7.
  • Bills Backyard has opened behind the Children's Discovery Museum, giving kids a new place to dig, roll, climb, build, and explore.
  • The Vacant Storefront Registry is an 18-month pilot program to activate long-vacant ground-floor spaces.
  • Four new businesses have opened in the San Pedro Square Market in the past month:
    • Barber Bar - haircuts and cocktails, need I say more
    • Urban Momo - South Asian fusion
    • 2W Salads - healthy salads, wraps, and stuffed potatoes
    • Crepes and More - eggs served four ways, smoothies, and crepes
  • Two more tech companies moved Downtown:
    • Pek Pongpaet (466 S. First) - UI / UX design
    • Kika Tech (8 N. San Pedro) - Artificial Intelligence
