Dining survey

Originally, results from a recent public Claremont Al Fresco survey were to be disclosed during the February 14 Claremont City Council meeting. However, select restaurant owners requested a switch to February 28 due to the Valentine’s Day holiday. Survey results will be presented to the Claremont City Council at its 7 p.m. February 28 meeting, where it’s anticipated the council will decide whether or not to implement a permanent outdoor dining program.
