28th Ave Promenade Project

The 28th Avenue Promenade Project is a proposed project that would close NE 28th Avenue between Burnside and Flanders for the purpose of creating a community space and allowing restaurants to serve customers outside in a safer environment that is possible inside – due to COVID-19.
