Few if any towns in the world are as blessed with weather as conducive to remaining outdoors day and night than is Coronado.

An ideal Coronado location for expanded outdoor dining may be the whole west (south-bound) side of the commercial Orange Avenue block going from First to Second Street, which (with few exceptions) carries very little automobile traffic after 5 p.m. weekdays, or anytime weekends or holidays; and which is lined with five restaurants. So, during all those low-traffic hours, perhaps the three street lanes, the adjacent sidewalk, and even part of the median, could be blocked off to be one huge al-fresco dining area, allowing lots of tables, 10 feet apart so patrons at different tables are at least 6 feet apart.

To mitigate the loss of parking spaces, there is a public parking lot nearby at First and D.

It would be so great if Coronado can quickly and dramatically expand its outdoor dining facilities.
