The latest developments around the region related to the novel coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, as of Wednesday evening include:

The Campbell City Council could take action next month on a proposed semi-permanent parklet system that would replace the temporary system currently in place.

Parklets have been a popular solution to restaurants and their patrons during the COVID-19 pandemic. Restaurants could remain open while providing diners with space to socially distance in an open-air setting.

The semi-permanent parklets could cost between $75,000-$90,000, depending on what options the restaurants might want to add.

That’s a price that has left many restaurateurs with sticker shock, with many saying that they might not want to consider participating without significant subsidies from either the city or their landlords.
