These actions will remain in effect until the state’s public health officer determines that modifications can be made as a result of public health data and conditions.
The Governor also announced
an emergency allocation of $62 million in one-time funds to local governments implementing Project Roomkey. These funds are being made available immediately to local governments with Project Roomkey sites so that residents living in motel or hotel rooms under the program will not be forced to return to the street while the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact California.
After months of advocacy efforts
by the League of California Cities and under the advisement of an executive order
issued by Gov. Gavin Newsom on Oct. 28, Caltrans released guidelines
for cities and counties to issue temporary encroachment permits enabling commercial activities in the state highway right-of-way. The permits will support businesses located along state highways to expand their outdoor dining options onto sidewalks and parking areas, and expand on a safe opportunity for diners to enjoy a meal and help support local businesses struggling with the economic impacts of COVID-19.
