Local Talk

Should Pacific Avenue be a one-way street, two-way street, or pedestrian only?

local-talk---jimI would definitely support closing off Pacific Mall to cars. I think that would be wonderful.

local-talk---yesiniaI think it should be a two-way, because that gets people in and out. As far as pedestrians … they’re going to have to deal with the traffic.

Yesinia Raya, Santa Cruz, Caregiver







local-talk---celineI wouldn’t change it to two-way traffic because that could lead to a lot more of a mess … there’s going to be a really rough adjustment period.

local-talk---peterI would support making Pacific Avenue pedestrian only, because it’s a wonderful way of supporting community. It’s better for the business community by bringing people into the street.
