The latest addition of Downtown Dimension is now live. Below is a summary of the content this month.

The AUGUST 2020 Downtown Dimension is now available for download.

In this edition:
  • San Pedro Street between Santa Clara and St. John streets closes for al fresco dining, the first such street closure in the city.
  • A new ParkSJ parking plan begins Aug.3.  The first 90 minutes are free. The temporary free street parking period due to coronavirus also ends Aug. 3.

SJDA's first virtual public meeting coming up Aug. 14

SJDA's meeting Aug. 14 will stream live on Facebook Live starting at 8:15 a.m.  To view the meeting, simply go to our Facebook page @sjdowntown.  The meeting will include a detailed presentation about SJDA's Stabilization Plan, which identifies what's next for the Downtown Association in the near-term and looking out 2-3 years.  More than 1,200 people responded to our survey request, many of which indicating they wanted to hear about the results, so we're expecting a large viewership that day.

We hope you can "attend" from your home or office.
