Survey: Downtown parklets – Should they stay or should they go?
–As part of an Economic Recovery Package, the Paso Robles City Council recently authorized funds to continue supporting the current parklet program through June 2021, which is the end of the city’s 2020-2021 fiscal year.
The city is now in discussions about the future of the parklet program including a potential long-term parklet program and is seeking input from the business community and residents of Paso Robles.
In June, the city council approved downtown parklets with conditions after convening roundtable discussions the local business community. The council approved a one-year city-wide parklet pilot program, to be revisited in ten months. Parklets were to be limited to food and beverage businesses, primarily restaurants and tasting rooms.
