    Music is one of many draws to the Minnesota State Fair each summer. The pandemic forced officials to cancel this year’s Fair, but the new Relief Sessions Summer Concert Series aims to replicate – on a much smaller scale – the musical aspects of the Great Minnesota Get-Together. Each day from Aug. 27 through Labor Day, a series of 48 musical acts will perform in the Burnsville Civic Center parking lot. Most concerts before 5 p.m. each day are free, with tickets for later shows running from $30-$10. VIP options start at $150 and offer access to the spaces closest to the stage. Tickets are available online via ticketworks.com. Performers include GB Leighton (Aug. 30), Patty Peterson’s Jazz Women All...
    On a balmy evening in Atwater Village, diners at candlelit tables shared plates of Cuban food and flights of beer, serenaded by an accordion player down the block. The scene was almost romantic, but for one catch: The tables were a few feet from rush-hour traffic zipping past on Glendale Boulevard. “A table in a parking space, I was a little surprised,” utility inspector Luis Castillo said as he and a co-worker ate blackened tilapia and arroz con pollo. “But it’s nice to sit down and eat.” The COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped commutes, workplaces and schools. Now, Southern California’s street network, the region’s largest public space, is transforming, too. With COVID-19 cases surging, and indoor dining banned, more...
    Beacon committee proposes low-cost upgrades The Main Street Access Committee, a volunteer group in Beacon created by Mayor Lee Kyriacou to address parking, traffic, transit and pedestrian challenges, submitted a list to the City Council this week of low-cost “quick fixes” ahead of a comprehensive report. Some of the recommendations, such as those for new stop signs, must be forwarded to the city’s Traffic Safety Committee before they can be considered. Repaint faded and missing crosswalk lines at all intersections in light of higher pedestrian traffic during the pandemic; Place stop signs at all intersections within two blocks of Main Street and where side streets feed into Main Street to slow traffic; Install double-sided signs at the Main Street...
    BOSTON (AP) — Four Massachusetts communities have received a total of more than $500,000 in state grants to improve city streets to make them safer and more business friendly, authorities say. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation grants for the Shared Streets & Spaces Program help cities conceive, design, and implement changes to curbs, streets, on-street parking spaces and off-street parking lots in support of public health, pedestrian and bicycle mobility, and business. The latest round of grants announced this week went to Norwood, Lawrence, Plymouth and Westford. Norwood's $120,000 grant will be used to establish four ‘parklets’ throughout the downtown area, including additional walking space and room for safe outdoor dining and recreation. Plymouth's $173,000 grant will be used in...
    (WJZ)- The Downtown Partnership of Baltimore announced Thursday that they will be providing “parklets” to turn parking spots into available dining areas for restaurants that have limited sidewalk space for outdoor seating. The “parklet” is a specially designed unit that allows for dining safely in a curbside parking spot. The Partnership worked with Design Collective and OE Customs in order to create the parklet in order to make something that was both moveable and heavy enough to keep people safe from traffic. The parklet’s design includes umbrellas for shade along with string lighting, benches and chairs. The Partnership will be installing the parklet in front of popular restaurants along Charles Street with the location moving every two weeks to a...
