Ciudad Creativa Digital and Chapalita will be part of the gastronomic corridors of Guadalajara. The Government Commission of the Guadalajara City Council endorsed this Thursday the initiative of councilman Luis Cisneros to create them and, in addition, expand those that already exist in the city.
“The corridors that already exist in the City will be expanded and two new corridors will also be created. in order to allow the new gastronomic corridors that restaurants and cafes can request permission to place their tables and chairs outside their establishment,” Cisneros said.
The purpose of this initiative is to provide a regulation so that those who have restaurants, cafes or the like, that are located in the gastronomic corridors or in the special intervention zone of the Historic Center, may request permission from the City Council to place tables, chairs, ornaments and the like in public spacesalthough they must guarantee at least two meters for pedestrian crossing.
With the reform, the corridors will be as follows: Chapultepec-Americana, Paseo Fray Antonio Alcalde, Mexico Avenue, Chapalita, Providencia and Digital Creative City.
“It is of the utmost importance that the various gastronomic corridors that we have in the city are an attraction for the citizens, at the moment in which the merchants themselves can take their furniture out into the streets, it will give their businesses greater capacity, attracting new consumers, and therefore greater income, along with having the possibility of tasting a dish or drink in an urban environment, in these corridors it will make diners more attractive, “he said.
Last May, the plenary session of the City Council authorized taking tables and chairs to the restaurants and cafeterias located in the existing corridors.
To date, Cisneros explained, only in the Paseo Alcalde corridor, 28 requests have already been received from restaurants to take their tables to public spaces such as sidewalks, terraces or small squares.
“These applications are already being reviewed, the Mobility Directorate is ruling that there are no effects on pedestrians and due respect for public space and once these conditions have been reviewed, it would be possible to grant said permit.”
