Local Scene: Alleyway meeting; upcoming theater performances

Input sought on downtown alleyways

The City of Gilroy is seeking public input on the downtown alleyways.

The city was recently awarded a $3.9 million grant through the California Department of Transportation Clean California Grant Program for infrastructure and aesthetic improvements of Gourmet Alley and Railroad Alley to create pedestrian and bicycle-friendly pathways.

Many of the project details are dictated by the terms of the grant. However, there are some areas that have some flexibility for input, such as the aesthetic feel or theme of the alleys. 

A virtual meeting will be held on Nov. 15 from 6-7pm. To join, visit gilroy.city/Gourmet, webinar ID: 834 9391 7328, passcode: 043077. Or call in to Zoom by phone: 1.669.900.6833.

For information about the meeting, contact Rachelle Bedell at [email protected] or 408.846.0443.

For information about the Clean California Grant and project, visit cityofgilroy.org/859/City-Infrastructure-Projects.

To request Spanish language interpretation services for this meeting, contact [email protected] a minimum of 72 hours prior to the meeting.

The show is directed by Rod Pintello, and stars Jonathan Bass, Roberta Vinkhuysen, Vanessa Alvarez, Dena Gregory and Angela Doss Santiago.Admission is $25. For tickets and reservations, visit pintellocomedy.com.
