Downtown Martinez outdoor program expanded to Thursdays

Launched on June 12, the City of Martinez Outdoor Downtown program gives merchants the opportunity to provide outdoor dining and shopping experiences for their customers, while facilitating the physical distancing of patrons to comply with the current County Health Order.

By allowing businesses to use portions of City sidewalks, streets, and parking lots during specified days and times to spread out their dining and retail services, the Program aims to give a boost to our downtown business owners.

As an important reminder: patrons may not move the chairs and tables or other items provided by the participating businesses. In addition, customers may not bring their own chairs or other furniture for use on the sidewalk or in the street while dining or drinking at an establishment. Patrons are responsible for following the State and County regulations for masks and social distancing when engaged in outdoor activities like this Program. We are counting on you to help keep our community safe and to keep the Outdoor Downtown Program alive and well in Martinez.

The City is pleased to announce the following details for the seventh week of this economic recovery initiative, beginning on Thursday, July 30th.
