A plan is in the works to make a stretch of Fifth Avenue in downtown San Diego car-free and pedestrian-friendly.
The walkway would extend from Broadway to L Street and be modeled after similar car-free zones such as the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, as reported in The San Diego Union-Tribune.
This “Gaslamp Promenade” has the backing of the Gaslamp Quarter Association and some city leaders. But there are some kinks that need to be worked out such as financing, business deliveries and trash pickup.
David Garrick, who covers City Hall for Union-Tribune, joined Midday Edition on Thursday to talk about the proposal.
