The City of Solvang will keep Copenhagen Drive closed to make space for small businesses.
The area between Alisal Road and First Street is closed, as well as between First Street and Second Street.
The city council voted to extend the closure until October 31, 2021. Council members say that date could be changed if needed.
They also agreed to direct city staff to work with a branding and design committee to develop new guidelines for the Copenhagen street closure and to promote Solvang's character.
“The closure of Copenhagen will allow these businesses to expand onto sidewalks, and even into parking spots in the street, providing outdoor seating in compliance with the new regulations,” explained Xenia Bradford, Solvang City Manager.
