Protecting boundaries have been put in on July 11, when the town carried out its first section of out of doors eating alongside Colorado Boulevard. This was after outside eating pointers have been issued and a web-based software course of was carried out to make it simpler for companies to have protecting boundaries put in.
On July 18, the second section of the mission was carried out after Ellis Gear supplied to provide the Okay-rails and a purchase order order was authorized. The third section began on Aug. 8, which coated Okay-rail leases as much as Oct. 18. That was later prolonged till January.
