More than a thousand people have signed a petition to close Elm Street in Manchester to vehicular traffic to allow for expanded outdoor restaurant seating.
The restaurant operations manager proposing the plan says it would create more room for social distancing when restaurants are able to reopen.
Peter Macone, a partner at Republic and Campo Enoteca restaurants on Elm Street, started the petition at change.org. As of Monday, it had 1,198 signatures.
