Hi everyone, I've just heard from City staff that the media availability
will be on Gaukel St. today at 11:30am, not this evening.
I'll still come over at 7:30 as well, if you're able to stroll by at
either of these times.
See you around!

There isn’t an event link because we are not organizing a formal event.
Due to COVID we don’t want to encourage large gatherings.
I invite you out to experience it tonight, there won’t be any official
programMing, just an opportunity to enjoy the street together :)

Is there a web link of any kind promoting tomorrow evening's event?

I want to thank you all so much for your advocacy and enthusiasm over the
last year and a half. Seeing a pedestrian-first Gaukel Street go from idea
to reality has been such a thrilling experience for me.
Tomorrow evening (Thursday), there will be a grand opening at 7:30pm.
Let’s all come out, keep our distance, and make some noise for the evening
news cameras :)
Please bring sidewalk chalk if you have it — it will be great to draw
some art on the street to celebrate a walkable Gaukel!
My deepest thanks goes out to everyone who came out to the original
meeting at Bread and Roses, the pop-up park last September, and the council
meetings to make this a reality. All along, city staff and our city council
has been incredibly supportive.
Here’s a couple photos of Gaukel as the city was putting in furniture
See you tomorrow at 7:30pm!
