In August, La Jolla Village Merchants Association said it is looking for a new business improvement district office.
“Working with our budget, I’ve been looking to find something that could serve as a true main street office where people could pick up information about tourism, and have access to other publications,” said LJVMA executive director Jodi Rudick, who added she was eyeing Upper Girard for a prospective new office site.
Pointing out many restaurants closed indoors due to COVID have moved outdoors, Rudick noted a list of La Jolla restaurants offering outdoor dining with a slideshow of their setups can be viewed at https://lajollabythesea.com/fresh-air-dining-options-in-la-jolla/.
“We’ve got around 50 or 55 outdoor dining places in extended patios,” noted LJVMA board member Morgan Barnes.
Rudick added parklets, now allowed by the City, are also being considered by some La Jolla merchants.
“I love it, and I know Jodi has been working to permit the parklets,” commented LJVMA president Brett Murphy.
